I recently obtained an LX6 2080. Initially all was well, but the drive began to be intermittent, but now has mostly just stopped running. I opened it up and reseated all the connectors, but no joy.

 

Since I don't have the optical encoders to connect to the board, it seems that the board is doing little more than driving the stepper motor for the worm gear. Has anyone repaired, or replaced this circuit? It's a sweet little telescope that I'd hate to resign to the closet for want of a drive circuitfrown.gif

 

Thanks!

Lee J.
