Is this the right controller? LX200 classic
Posted 19 February 2013 - 02:15 PM
The seller has it listed as an AutoStar keypad, but it looks exactly like the one I'm missing for my classic. Any way to find out if this will be compatible with my scope?

I've been looking for one of these guys for months but they seem to keep slipping through my fingers.

maybe you might wanna try this?
Yes, I'm aware of that solution. However, tracking/goto is not of HUGE importance to me as I have no plans for astrophotography and I prefer starhopping to pressing buttons. I mostly just want tracking for outreach and sketching. Plus, if I were going to spend $400+, I'd probably just look into a new mount.

I have not upgraded my caps yet although they are ordered and in route. In the mean time I opened the controller and put a couple layers of Gorilla tape over the ribbon above the caps followed by a layer of aluminum tape and another layer of Gorilla tape as a precaution. Even after I replace the caps it will still provide protection in the off chance the new caps go super nova
That's not a bad idea. I may do the same until I get a chance to replace the capacitor.
