Stu,

It is a 497 if you don't need it anymore, how much you want for it?

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...

Regards,
Stu

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.
