You can try removing the focuser and knob -- and see why the LOCK (which is simply a bolt is stuck.

Meade lx200 acf r manual


Many Meade telescope manuals are available here: http://www.meade.com/support/manuals/ . There are several models in the LX200 series. The manual for the LX200-ACF is here: http://www.meade.com/downloads/dl/file/id/11/product/0/lx200_acf_manual.pdf . There is also a model LX200-R; the manual for this model is at http://www.meade.com/downloads/dl/file/id/13/product/0/lx200_r_manual.pdf . I don't see anything about a model with both the ACF and R features in this series.

I hope this helps.

Where, and how much, can I find a 4.5 mirror for a Meade telescope


Meade will not sell you a mirror- most likely. Other than buying a brand new mirror which will be expensive try looking on Craigslist for a 4.5 inch scope for sale CHEAP and take the mirror out of it.

Here is the Meade customer service web site you can also try here:

Go to the LX200 Yahoo Group. They have diagrams in the files which you can access if you are a member of the group.

Piece of felt covering mirror, is this suppose to be there?


Here is the manual for your telescope--

http://meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/Meade%20114%20EQ-ASB%20manual.pdf

The mirror at the bottom should NOT be covered-- with felt? Unless this was something Meade did to protect the mirror from dust and dirt during shipping?
