Meade ETX.

Postby Sheffield Col » Thu Dec 26, 2019 10:22 pm

I have just bought a Meade ETX 125 EC. from an auction, went to look at it before hand and it looked in excelent condition hardly used. It was in a large aluminium travel case, no marks on the case plus some eye pieces and finder scope and a level. I did not have the chance to try everything out but it looked so good so I went for it and won the auction. I may have paid a little too much but the moment got the better of me and I just had to have it. Got it home put some batteries in and had a go, unfortunately the motor that moves the scope up and down must have come loose, the motor was working but doing nothing. So on to YouTube, it seems a common problem with these scopes so I took it apart following the YouTube vid. And I am part way through repairing it at this moment, hopefully it will be a successful repair when finished. So watch this space. Colin..
