I can't really remember where it came from...I've had several LX200s and several it could be from anyone of those. I don't know if it even works...I sold one to Jim Tallman awhile back. You would have to plug it in to find out I guess.

One thing for don't fit anything I got now. If it works...any reasonable offer would be acceptable. I've also had's not one of those.

I could be wrong, but I think a 497 has a full keypad, 1-9 key + 0. A 494
has only a set of up/down/left right arrows. Is this handset is a 497, I
would be interested in purchasing it for my ETX60, if the price is right.

Chuck...I just put a photo of a handbox in the photo section that I had
laying on the shelf. I don't know what it fits...a LX200 or if it is a 497.
It looks like it has never been used...I don't even know if it works or
not...I have no Meade outfits to test with. Maybe you can ID it...

I bought a used Autostar 497 hand controller off of the Internet. It seems
to have a problem. It could be the attached cable, it looks a little rough.
I would like to know if anyone has a Meade Autostar 497 hand control and
cable I could use to see if it actually works on my ETX 70. The Autostar 494
hand controller works just fine. With this Autostar 497 I encounter a motor
fault after it starts to slew to the first alignment star. Like I stated, it
slews just fine with the Autostar 494, so I know there is nothing wrong with
the ETX 70.
