Feedback from Our Customers

On our LX200 Telescope Parts...

Thanks to you and your products for the Meade LX200 Classic, it has now been resuscitated and brought back to life. For 22 years I thought I was stuck with a very large paper weight that had a OTA attached. Looking forward to using it again. I look forward to continuously improving this LX200 classic. Words cannot express my appreciation and gratitude. Thanks again,

I just wanted to thank you for your products. I now have a fully functional 10 inch LX200 from 1993. The hand controller and power board work perfectly and the current draw did decrease with your power board.

I just want to thank you for keeping the LX200s alive with your hand controller. ... Thanks for doing what you do."

"I received all the items on my list and have installed it all. My Meade 10" 200lx emc is up and running perfectly. I can't tell you how pleased I am with your products and customer help. If I ever purchase another Meade classic you guys and gals will be the first I contact. Again THANK YOU Tony"

"Just to inform you that I have received the 3 items, which have arrived today in very good condition. I have tested everything and everything seems to be working fine. Very nice design for the 3 items, in particular the new OLED version of the Hand Controller. I also tried everything (including the joystick) with a PC equipped with astronomy software to control the LX200, and again, it's perfect. With this new equipments, my old LX200 will be able to be great again!"

"I purchased your LX200 USB Serial Adapter 4 months ago and have used it regularly. The LX200 Adapter is working flawlessly to control my LX200GPS in a direct wired USB configuration to Win10 or MacOS 13. It also works in a WiFi configuration to allow remote scope control via ASCOM (with SharpCap. SkySafari 5 and 6 Pro, ASCOM Remote Server, and AlpacaScope). The LX200 Adapter is a critical link in my visual and EAA observing strategies. I really appreciate the solid-build quality and the 100% up-time performance relative to WiFi techniques where I can experience dropouts. Awesome product that is highly recommended by this user!"

"Today I received the products I ordered and confirmed that they both work fine. Thanks to your products, I am able to extend the life of my LX200 even further. Boot emulator is also a very unique product and I love it."

"The Encoder Calibration Tool was marvelous!! It was very satisfying to have a visual indicator as the calibration was taking place.I am very pleased with the boards you sent and the new controller. Thank you"
-- Gary, UT USA, Feb 2021

"That calibration tool is great. After 2 DEC boards, HHC, and new [Power Panel Plus], my 10" LX200 Classic is operational. ...Thanks again it is great to use this scope again after 10 years of gathering dust!"
-- Scott, NH USA, July 2020

"Thanks for your service and in general for offering such spare parts replacing the manfacturers support. This relatively small investment saved me from scrapping the telescope mount. On top the calibration tool is really helpful."
-- Alex, Germany, Nov 2019

"Not only do they seem to work great, but they also look good (the purple is a nice touch), are easier to adjust, and it's worth the [price] to be able to solder on a nice clean fresh board, and not have to try to swap out that capacitor on there... I've destroyed one board by overheating it and pulling the solder pad up while trying to get the old capacitor removed! What a pain! Using your boards solves all of that."
-- Mike, Axis Squared LLC, Aug 2019

"I am very pleased with the Power board you supplied to me. It took me less than 10 minutes to fit it. A really nicely made board."
-- Roger, UK, Aug 2019

"...I installed your calibration board and set the encoder pots per your instructions and everything went perfectly. The RA motor now operates smooth and quite as before. No more runaway RA motor! Thank you again."
-- John, NY USA, Apr 2019

"Calibration board worked great. In the past I've tuned the pots by with a digital volt meter to get it close, then fine tune by sound. Using the calibration board is quick and simple. Takes longer to get access to the motors than it does to tune them with the calibration board. Doesn't get much easier than that."
-- Tom, WA USA, Aug 2018

"I received both the replacement motor board and calibration board. Both look well made. I used the calibration board to check the potentiometers and it works very nicely....You have produced a nice product for the LX200 Classic."
-- Ed, NY USA, May 2018

"I highly recommend them [motor encoder boards], even for owners who are not presently experiencing any issues with their existing original boards."
