Subject: saturn Meade Model DS-60 Sent: Wednesday, June 21, 2006 19:17:54 From: PAUL SCHRADER (email@example.com) Just a question of where to get the computer program disc or download for a Saturn Meade Model DS-60. I have lost my disc and really wanted to get it working again. Thank You Paul Schrader Reynoldsburg, OhioMike here: You will have to contact Meade for any replacement of software they supplied with the telescope.
Subject: Meade DS mount modification Sent: Monday, June 19, 2006 08:13:34 From: Charlie Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) I bought a Meade DS mount on Ebay last year and was never able to get my Orion Short Tube 80 mounted in it, so I just went back to using a cheap camera tripod for it. Recently, I saw someone had a TeleVue Ranger for sale on Ebay, and had modified a Meade DS mount to put his ranger in. So, perusing the net, I found your website. I have a question for you about the DS mount. How do you get the cradle from the DS mount out of the mount fork so you can attach one of your mounting brackets? I do not want to pry anything out. Is there some sort of nut or bolt inside the plastic cradle? Could you send me detailed instructions as to how to disassemble the DS mount? Any help would be greatly appreciated, detailed pics of the DS mount cradle would be great. Thank you, Charles BrownMike here: I don't have a DS Mount but you will find several tips on mounting other telescopes on a "DS Mount" on the Helpful Information: Telescope Tech Tips page. Perhaps one of those articles will help you.
