Guide :Optics : ETX-90 (48x90 mm)

I have a Meade ETX 90 EC with a problem with the declination lock (verticle lock). I talked with a Meade tech rep who said to remove the know, but it will not come off. He also said they no longer stock parts. So, how to remove the know and once that is off, what can be done?

Try holding the metal ring with the down and twisting the dial to the left independently

The vertical lock knob on my Meade ETX-70AT was over tightened and is broken. I contacted Meade and was told that they no longer stock this part. Looking for a source for the part.


You might be able to drill a hole through the plastic knob and use a washer and a bolt to hold the screw tight. Or do something like this fix:http://www.schlatter.org/Dad/Astronomy/etx90decknb.htm

I have a Meade ETX 60 / 70 AT. When I moved to Louisville a few years ago. The telescope would no longer initiate and could not find my location. I put the telescope away and did nothing with it. It is a great piece of equipment and I would like to get going again. I called Meade customer service and they said to buy a new one. My question is - anybody who could evaluate the telescope? Any contacts, clubs, etc? Any help would be appreciated. Bill


Most repairs will be MORE than the telescope is worth.You can buy these used (and working) on AstroMart.com from time to time for under $200.Meade will repair this for about $175. So it makes no sense. The only thing I would try is a new hand controller cable. If it still does not work then you may be able to seell it for parts on astromart.com

Meade etx-105ec Hello, the major problem wiht the scope is that the focus whell does not work in manual or automatic mode. It was not working well, kind of stiff, but now the adjusting knob just backs out of the housing tube and when you look though the eye piece nothing can be viewed at all! I phone Meade and they said they no longer service this unit and it is past it's service life?


You could try: P. CLAY SHERROD ARKANSAS SKY OBSERVATORY #73 Tanyard Springs Road, Petit Jean Mountain MORRILTON, ARKANSAS 72110 www.arksky.orgwho offers supercharging and repair [email protected]

On a meade ETX 90RA Premier edition


Contact Meade and see what they charge to CLEAN the telescope:http://www.meade.com/support/index.htmlI seem to remember it was about $100 plus shipping. The 80 is a completely different telescope style-- the 90mm is a Maksutov Telescope.

First time using the mead etx 60at. I turned it on and set the date / time / enter. Then set it at north and horizontal,enter. It asked if i wanted the easy alignment, I said yes. I said searching. Then it said the name of astar and said it was slewing but the telescope isn't moving.


Did you lock down BOTH clutches? You should have Calibrated motors and trained drives before you actually tried to do a goto.Read this manual completely:http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/ETXtelescopes/ETX-60-70AT%20manual.pdf
