Meade LX200 Classic Questions?
Posted 30 June 2013 - 12:44 PM
1)Is there not a way to slow down the slewing speed when manually slewing to center the object in the eyepiece? If so,How?
2) There is no place on the controller that states Planets, like on my Celestron 8SE controller. Where, on the hand controller,or how do you do Goto of the Planets on the hand controller?
I hope you understand what I am asking and I realize I could google the user guide,yet it is more fun to come here and ask more knowledgeable people on here. I Thank you all,ahead of time for your input and advice. Tim
I probably should have posted this in the mounts forum ,yet thought since it was a classic?

The planets are all numbered just like the stars. For example, in the LX200 Classic manual it says that Saturn is 906. To go there, on your handbox press Star (the #6 key), then type in 906, press Enter, then press GoTo.

Okay another thing I am having trouble with is finding out how I can change the speed of the focuser when using the Meade #1206 electronic focuser.
Haven't owned one for a while, but the way I remember it is that the same four buttons that control slew speed control the focuser speed when in focuser mode. It'll be in the LX200 manual rather than the focuser manual.

Thanks for the info John C I will have to check that out, I found the manual online yet have yet to find the info on changing focusing speed. It did not seem to have the info for the #1206 focuser. Okay,I stand corrected I looked more closely and found how it states you can change the focuser speed . Thanks, I just need to read a little more closely at times. Thanks, Tim

I was wrong; there are only two speeds. It's covered on page 15 of the manual on Meade's website.
