Meade LX200 Repair?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Seems like my 12" LX200 Classic is in need of repair. RA drive is not tracking correctly and is somewhat jerky. I have found description of similar symptoms on the MAPUG site so it could be an encoder problem.

Does anyone know where I can get it repaired in the UK?

:)

Have a look at the Yahoo LX200 forum. This type of problem seems associated with the trim pots.

Alan Sickling the guy you want. If you can't find his contact details on the Forum, drop me a PM and I'll supply them.

Otherwise BC&F (Telescope House) are Meade's UK importer/distributer - they handle repairs.

My 12" was like that in RA (inasmuch as there was noticable, if small, movement if you grabbed ahold of the arms and twisted) which turned out to be nothing more than a couple of loose bolts. Unfortunately, it was the ones holding the RA worm gear to the RA axis... a major stripdown though not too daunting if you can lay the whole thing down safely :)
