We have a Meade DSX 125 AT scope and have lost the Handbox for it...We
have tried a lot of sites on the internet, but no one seems to have one
(Meade wants $150 for one). T%he scope was given to us & since we
already have 2 other ones, we don't want to spend a lot of money on this
one. Hope someone can tell us where we might find this handbox.  Thank
You...Frances .......sparkle@air-internet.com
Mike here: You do need an Autostar #497 (lists for $150). You can occasionally find used ones on eBay. Also, you might check Telescope Warehouse (link on the Astronomy Links page). If the Autostar ROM is not reasonably current you will need to update it yourself to the current version (which understands the DSX models).

Does anyone have a reference web site or pictures of how to dissassemble
the base and arm of the one-arm DSX mounts from Meade?

Looking for pictures of motor / drive assembly for adjustment and fine
tuning purposes.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
