Jeff are you going to Boardwalk astronomy on Tuesday night?

If so I can bring the little beast and check it out there?

I have one for my ETX-125.

If I look around I may find another for an old ETX-70 also, Chuck.

I’ll give you a call, tomorrow.

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.
