Something similar happened to me when I had done a quick align. I asked the scope to go to the moon, which was obviously visible above the horizon but it pointed downwards. I found out that I had entered the date (month day year) in the wrong order (day month year - as is common in Sweden). Just a long shot... /Fourier

I have a Meade LX-90 8 inch telescope that gets a motor fault failure in declination. I have done all the usual attempts to fix it Ex. train drive which geberates error, swap out autostar, autostar cable, reseat cables on the dec motor board etc. On approx 11/2010 I posted this same question to FixYa and they gave me the name of a person who I beleive lived in Haverhill Mass who I contacted thru the Yahoo LX-90 user group and was planning on bringing my scope to him for possible repair. As luck would have it I had a harddrive failure and lost all infomation about this person (should have put the info on paper) Yup I know about backups, had external HD backup which did not work. Is it possible that you would still have this persons name so I could contact him again. Thank You In Advance John Maher Hudson Ma [email protected]


Well it could be several people:Ron Sampson -- available on the Yahoo LX90 group post a message for him- he can repair any of the boards inside the scope and also the hand controller.or The Astronomy Shoppe- http://www.astronomy-shoppe.com/

2-star alignment I use a celestron 8i. I have updated motor control and a new hand control When I attemp planet, 1-star, 2-star alignment, the program tells me alignment is successful, but the alignment does not hold. When I immediately enter the name of one of the aligned stars, the telescope slews to a point different than the alignment star. Suggestions?


I also have an 8i, but decided not to upgrade the controls yet. I've had my scope for about four years. I have experienced the same problem and am not sure what what causes it. Some nights, the scope tracks alignment all night, other times it does not. When the later occurs, the only thing that helps is to repeat the alignment picking new targets. One night, I had to repeat alignment 3-4 times. Also, I highly recommend a book by Michael Swanson, "The Nexstar User's Guide". It's an easy read, very specific and keeps the novice in mind. It should be included with every Nexstar sold. Go online to: http://www.Nexstarsite.com. Hope this helps. John

When I press 0 on the autostar panel to initialize, I get, "motor unit fault". What is the problem?


Do you have brand new batteries? low power will cause this.Also a broken gear inside will also cause this to happen.

I have a LX90 Lnt 8 inch scope that I purchased new in 2004. Whenever the scope slews it continues to slew just beyond the point the directional keys are released.


There is probably a mechanical resistance or misadjustment in the slewing mech, or a slightly worn part. The keys could also be slightly worn, creating a delay, or there could be slight oxidation on the key contact area, which could possibly be cleaned, but usually needs replacement due to it's design. A service manual would have the calibration and alignment procedure, if you could get Meade to send you one (they might prefer you to have it serviced at a great rate (for them). If the unit is in warranty, enforce that. They might just swap it out for a new one. If the warranty isn't in effect, you can contact Meade and see what they suggest: http://www.meade.com/support/auto.html You can learn to adjust for the irregularity, hopefull, otherwise the unit will have to be serviced. Good luck, and hope this helps.
