Solarmax 60 repair?
Posted 20 May 2013 - 03:43 PM
Fortunately there was no breakage, these scopes seem pretty tough.
But I have noticed that the tuning wheel does not turn as much as it used to. I think the threaded shaft with the brass thumbwheel is bent. Fortunately I can still get a decent image out of it.
Given that Meade wants a minimum of $300-600 plus shipping just to look at it, I am wondering if anyone has ever replaced the threaded rod on one of these?

I have a friend that has had problems with his SM60 and has more or less abandoned it due to a cracked internal etalon. I did some fishing on the internet for him and was able to find a basic manual. Hope that this may help?
