Re: LX90 astrophotography

Hi Brian - did you get anywhere with your enquiry about a wedge? I have a standard meade wedge for up to 8" scope - you are welcome to borrow if you wish.
Cheers

Jupiter and the moon - first attempts

Hi folks - I've been having a look at some of the pics here - there are some good ones worth aspiring to. I must try to get to the next meeting to see if I can get some hints on imaging and post processing! I've not managed along for some time now. Now the scopes are permanently housed in a roll off...

Update!

As of yesterday the scope works. Goto and everything! The greatest comeback since Lazarus! Many thanks to Steve Collingwood at Telescope House - OUTSTANDING service, way above and beyond duty.

LX200 still down!
I'd like to check the keyboard and the dec cables just to eliminate them from the equation. Would anyone on the forum happen to have (working) LX200 cables I could borrow, try and return?
Thanks folks

The front panel lights up as does the handbox, and I was able to run a focusser from the front panel (but not cont...

LX200 classic problem

Hi folks - help needed please! Does anyone on the forum have experience with LX200? Mine seems to have developed a fault - the handset simply shows "Meade" and won't activate the scope. Any number of causes appear possible if posts to other sites are to be believed - none of them good news...
