20 Most Recent Meade ETX90AT Maksutov Telescope with UHTC (cat35140321) - Page 3 Questions & Answers

Many Meade telescope manuals are available here: http://www.meade.com/support/manuals/ . There are several models in the LX200 series. The manual for the LX200-ACF is here: http://www.meade.com/downloads/dl/file/id/11/product/0/lx200_acf_manual.pdf . There is also a model LX200-R; the manual for this model is at http://www.meade.com/downloads/dl/file/id/13/product/0/lx200_r_manual.pdf . I don't see anything about a model with both the ACF and R features in this series.

I hope this helps.

Have you tried the manufacturer's website or support services ?

I suspect that what you have is a combination of two problems:
1. you are very far out of focus,
2. you have too much magnification.

Here's what I would do.

Point your scopt at some distant trees. Use your lowest power eyepiece, and run the focus all the way from one end to the other. At some point, you should see the tree leaves....

I had this problem after a repair and was told to unconnect all boards and then reconnect them. Amazingly it worked and is worth a try. If this does not cure your "runaway dec" , call Tony Castanza at the Astronomy Shoppe in NH. He fixed my LX200 and may have some suggestions. If your Dec motor resistors need tuning I'm guessing he can do it.
