For converting Meade Autostar telescope drives to other
purposes, i suggest joining the "Roboscope" yahoo group.
It's their main purpose/activity.

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

Mike here: You will have to contact Meade for any replacement of software they supplied with the telescope.

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 Brown
Mike 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.
