The front panel for the telescope has an internal fuse. Remove the screws and look at the circuit board for a fuse. Replace with the same type and rating. The telescope has a diode with the fuse that gives some protection against reverse polarity, and the telescope should function on this fix.

SOURCE: Meade DS-2000 Manual Doesn't have info. about Meade Ds-2130

ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.

SOURCE: vista will not work with autostar 494

I did some research on meade 506 astrofinder software

Read this...

Customer Review:
Rating: stars-1.0.gif
Summary: outdated software
The software this kit comes with is old and outdated. It is not supported by Windows XP nor Windows Vista. The latest supported version of Windows is Windows 98.
It also appears that the included software is a limited trial software. It is limited to the included 3 catalogs (star maps). The complete set of catalogs must be purchased additionally at quite some expense.
The cable connection kit couldn't be reviewed because it was missing from the package I received, but keep in mind when you order this kit, that neither Windows XP nor Windows Vista support serial ports anymore. The additional USB to serial adapter would be required.

That last line would suggest to me that if one had a USB to Serial adapter it might work? but I really do not know for sure. checking into some more stuff...

Found another article that states "It requires a PC running Windows 98SE through Windows XP. It will not run under Windows 95 or earlier, nor will it run under Windows Vista."

OK I found this site, you might be able to make some sense of it. But I did read in there that they do make USB serial adapters that will work with Vista OS.

Good Luck and happy star gazing! If you find something new out there maybe you could name it after me if you get it working. lol

You can control a Meade scope using several different planetarium programs if you have the correct Meade cable.

Stellarium, and Cartes du Ciel both can control the scope. If you have a real serial port on your computer you can use the Meade cable and plug in to the bottom of the hand controller.

If your computer does not have serial ports then you must buy a USB to Serial adapter cable. Keyspan is a good brand.
