LX200 Hand Controller Protocol Notes

Read our (in-progess) technical notes on the Classic LX200's CPU-to-Hand Controller communications.


LX200 Power Panel Circuit Boards

We now have two different replacements for the power panel PCBs on the Meade LX200 Classic telescope. Both improve on the originals, one includes auto-sensing hand controller emulation.


LX200 Motor Encoder Circuit Board

This motor encoder is an improved replacement part for the circuit boards originally installed on Meade LX200 Classic telescopes and LXD650 and LXD750 mounts. For both RA and DEC motors.


Our Goal

We wish to be a source for hard-to-find components that enable repair, refurbishment, and enhancement of legacy equipment. We design for low production and engineering costs, so that we can operate profitably in low volumes with attractive pricing.

Telescope Products

We offer replacement parts for the Meade LX200 telescope. Available now are motor encoder PC boards for the R.A. and Declination motor assemblies, two power panel PC boards and a hand controller boot emulator. Nearing release is a replacement hand controller for the LX200 Classic, available January 2020.
