Question about Meade Optics

1 Answer

Hi, I have a meade lxd55 tripod (with 8" discovery newtonian mounted on it). 2 of the 3 leg braces at the bottom that also hold the eye piece tray have broken. I need to replace 2 or all 3. Can I get those parts without having to buy another complete tripod? will the lxd 55 mount fir on an lxd75 tripod? are there other current model tripods my lxd55 will mount on? thank you, Rick.

Hello I need to know if my AR-6 refractor for my LXD55 mount is a direct replacement for mounting on an LDX75 mount and tripod? Also would a CG-5 GEM hold an AR-6?


No-- you need a CG6 to accurately hold that 6 inch refractor.

Recommend that you look at the Celestron 6 inch SCT-- or the Astro-Tech RC6, which can be mounted on that CG5.

Tip

Fixed tripod mount.


I fixed my problem to my meade polaris 114EQ-D (36x 114mm) reflecting telescope. I took a piece of small pipe with a dust mop conection in it with a hole through it and took a 1/4-20 x1 1/2 in. long and bolted them together. It works great.

2 questions concerning Meade LXD55 astronomical telescope. Meade apparently no longer supports this instrument and I have been unable to find the answers to these questions. #1: The central screw holding...


Doubtful you will find just a reticle- for the polar finder. However you may be able to buy a complete polar alignment scope-- new-- or used on Astromart.com.

Best place o find out about that spring is on the Yahoo Group LXD55 tech group-- Post your question there as they have specific knowledge about that mount. And also look at this special LXD55 web site for many tech tips.

Meade ds-114at reflecting digital telescope is what I am looking into buying but it is missing the eye piece where can I get one or can I get one at all??


Do not buy that telescope. It is a tiny reflector style telescope, with a shaky tripod.

Instead look at one of these. Much more aperature and a stable Dobsonian mount.

http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=09804

or the 6 inch size model.

When you set the tripod up 2 of the lugs have broken from where the accessary tray fits,one arm to one lag,its where it attatches to the legs


Contact Meade directly and see if they have a replacement tray.

http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

or build one to fit from a piece of wood or metal.

Need the plastic foot on the tripod leg.


Try going to the Meade website home page, find your Tripod parts section and see if you can order a rplacement foot for it. It should be fairly cheap.

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification


It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.
