Does anyone here know of a source for a coiled power cord for a Meade LX200? There had been someone on one of the forums that made these. The one I had for years finally gave up the ghost and I would like to replace it.

Any assistance would greatly be appreciated.

Thank You,

Thank you Skywatchr, however, I tried there first with no luck.

Still looking for one.

Are you looking for an AC or DC powercord? If it's DC, Radio Shack sells a DC adapter with interchangable tips. The correct tip is not in the pack, but the tip is available there as well. (I belive its a type "n" ). Thats what I use and it works well. EBAY ocasionally has them too.

I bought two of them at Radio Shack years ago. They include fuses too, and the center post is positive, matching Meade's conventions.
