My Auto Star says it is slewing when I try to GOTO an object but the telescope is not moving. Buy a telescope from a well known manufacturer and from an established telescope dealer who will stand behind the sale (see the Dealers section on the Astronomy Links page for some good dealers). Only you can determine whether an ETX or DS model is right for you. Many Meade manuals, including DSX, several DS models, LX90, LXD55, and ETX, Auto Stars, and Auto Star Suite, are available on Meade's web site. By my measurements the eyepiece clamp screw used on ETX telescopes is a metric screw 3MM dia. [from Forrest Lundberg] A good source for replacements is Scopestuff ( If you are in a location where the difference is 15 degrees, your alignment stars will be a similar amount off. But it is obviously better to start with the proper North. See the "Cable Information" articles on the "Auto Star Information" page. This cable includes some special electronics that are needed (unlike the #495 and #497 Auto Stars). "Department Store" telescopes are not normally a good beginner's telescope; they can disappoint and frustrate the new user to the point where interest is lost. For more on the HOME position, see the "Alignment Tips" articles on the "Auto Star Information" page as well as the "Premier Edition / LNT Specific Tips" section on the Helpful Information: Telescope Tech Tips page. The difference in the two "norths" is called Magnetic Variation and varies from 0 degrees to nearly 20 degrees, depending upon your location on the Earth. How do I a make a #506 cable for the Auto Star #494? The ETX-60AT and ETX-70AT with the #494 Auto Star requires the #506 cable. The mount is a single fork arm, unlike the previous dual fork arm ETX models. What is the difference between the ETX-LS, LS, and LT models? Sent: Monday, December 14, 2009 From: Meade Instruments ETX-LS 6/LS-6: are the same Light Switch, Astronomer Inside (built-in Audio), Auto Star III, Eclips CCD Module, GPS, Magnetic North Sensor Telescope. It also includes a built-in CCD camera for true Auto Align (the camera "sees" the alignment stars) as well as for wide-field astrophotography. You should also read "Getting Started in Astrophotography" and if you want to learn a lot more, see the Practical Astrophotography book review. For more on magnification see "Telescope Performance III - Magnification". Press one and the speed increases; press the other and it slows down. That's what the -auto- commands: "automatically select it", rather than merely present it as a possibility. * footnote: "always" = 99.5% [from Dick Seymour] Back to the Table of Contents. It should be done if you are seeing "rubberbanding" (which is when the Auto Star slews an object away from the center of the eyepiece FOV after you have manually centered it). Use the arrow keys at the bottom of the Auto Star keypad to change scrolling speed. My Auto Star says it is slewing when I try to GOTO an object but the telescope is not moving. One is to just name it, as in "PLANET VENUS" and the other is to put the words "AUTO SELECT" in there, as in "AUTO SELECT PLANET VENUS" The "AUTO SELECT" in effect presses the "Enter" for you. It slews until it hits the hard stop in either azimuth or altitude. It should also be done after updating the Auto Star ROM. You should understand what you want to get out of being an amateur astronomer, what you want to do with the telescope, and what your expectations are, and then you should do some research on available telescope models and capabilities. The HOME position depends on the model and alignment mode you select. Does the Auto Star use positive or negative values for West Longitude? In really old Auto Star versions, West Longitude was positive. Beginning in amateur astronomy is like beginning any hobby. Next press MODE once and then press the up arrow key (lower left of the keypad) once.
What is the difference between the RA, EC, AT, PE, and LS models? What is the difference between the ETX-LS, LS, and LT models? Are the ETX-90/105/125 base components interchangeable? I just updated my Auto Star with a newer from Meade's web site. The power went off while I was updating my Auto Star and now it doesn't work. Besides all the user reports and feedback, see "What to Expect from Your Small Telescope". For the ETX-60/70/80, which don't have hard stops on the Azimuth axis, you just point the OTA to True North. That was true until version 2.1Ek and newer; they actually use the word EAST or WEST. How can I tell what version of the Auto Star software (ROM) I have? What is and when should I CALIBRATE MOTOR, CALIBRATE SENSORS, and TRAIN DRIVES? When it comes time to do the research, this web site can help a great deal with its actual user experiences. If you don't have a PE model (with the LNT), then there is only one Home position for the ETX-90/105/125: CCW to the hard stop and then back CW about 120 degrees to point the OTA to True North (the control panel will be on the west side). It was changed in 1.1m to West being input as negative. Manually level, point the tube north and manually verify the guide star. The LS and the LT are both single fork arm telescopes with 6" apertures, so they look very similar on the surface. Mike here: There is now a family of LS and LT models. Are the ETX-90/105/125 base components interchangeable? As a result, it was decided to drop "ETX" to eliminate comparison and confusion between the two. You have to manually enter time, date, and location. All three are markedly different." Back to the Table of Contents.
How do I upgrade a non-Auto Star ETX to an Auto Star capable ETX? My Declination (altitude) setting circle is off, what do I do? The Right Ascension (azimuth) setting circle tape moves, what do I do? One of the drive motors runs continuously but I don't see any movement of the telescope tube.
