Subject: update ds2130at .965 filters Sent: Thursday, April 29, 2004 23:56:12 From: "H L Keaton" (email@example.com) I SPOKE WITH MEADE, AND THERE ARE NO .965 FILTERS AVAILABLE. MEADE SENT ME A 1.25 HUB FOR $0, AND I BOUGHT THE CELESTRON 1.25 KIT FOR $119.00. NOW I HAVE A DECENT SET-UP FOR ABOUT $400.00. IT IS A GOOD STARTING POINT FOR LOW-END SCOPES. I WAS SHOCKED AT HOW WELL IT WORKS. THANKS FOR THE GREAT SITE.
Subject: 114 EQ_DH4 Parts and manuals Sent: Saturday, April 24, 2004 08:18:09 From: "Lee Ann" (firstname.lastname@example.org) Hello, I am in need of a manual and parts list for my telescope, my husband bought this (at my request) 3 years ago and I want to try and get it working but have since lost the manual...please helpMike here: For manuals, see the FAQ page on my ETX. There is a link to Meade's manuals page. As to parts, check Telescope Warehouse; their link is on the Astronomy Links page.
thanks so much for the quick response and the help, I am determined to be "smart enough" to figure this out, I even took a class but the first thing the teacher said was , if you are in this class to learn how to use a telescope you are in the wrong class....I now know where some of the objects are but how to track them with my telescope is another thing, is this a good scope for an amateur?Mike here: Almost any telescope is a good place to start. But don't expect to see things the way they appear in photographs.
Subject: ds2130atx- .965 filters Sent: Friday, April 16, 2004 11:42:33 From: "H L Keaton" (email@example.com) YOUR SITE IS GRRREAT. COULD YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF ANY BUSINESS THAT SELLS MEADE .965 FILTERS. I WOULD HATE TO THINK I WOULD HAVE TO BUY A 1.25 ADAPTER AND BUY ALL NEW EYEPIECES. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP YOU DID NOT KNOW YOU HAD GIVEN ME. THE SKIES OVER THE N.GA. MTNS. IS GREAT.Mike here: I did a quick search and couldn't find any 0.965 filters. But perhaps someone else will have a solution.

Subject: Training values Date: 4/4/04, 06:30 From: Gianni (email@example.com) Blank I have read the article on (Training values) LXD55 Date: 3/9/04, 12:06 Giving the following final solution: Best Fit Az Intercept 357 Best Fit Alt Intercept 748 I have a motorized polar montatura with motors DS and Autostar 497 with patch 31e4 I have selected the 114EQ, I can use the values training of the LXD55 for my montatura? Or where I can find the values that they serve to me? Excuse the translation but I do not speak English (I have used the Internet translator) THANKS for the aidMike here: Training values are specific to a mount. Which is why retraining is necessary when moving an Autostar from one mount to another. For your DS motors you need to TRAIN DRIVES while the Autostar is connected to that mount. When you switch back to the LXD55 you need to reTRAIN.
