Last night while setting up my 8” LX90 in the dark, I found the telescope was not operational.
I discovered I had accidentally connected the electrical supply cable ends to the wrong terminals of the 12-volt battery. After I reconnected the supply cable ends to the correct terminals, the Audiostar hand controller had “died” and is not working anymore.
It would appear there is no reverse polarity protection in the system.
May I know the extent of damage that this wrong connection had caused.
Is this damage repairable by a person with little knowledge in electronics or the whole telescope has to go back to Meade for the repair.
