Hi community, the drive base on this what seems to be a Meade 2120 Lx5 10" f/10 powers up and motor spins, but does not move the scope anymore, so it's completely manual at this point. The display on the hand controller is completely dead as well.
What I need this scope to do is to accurately track an object in order to take long exposure shots through it.
What wallet friendly options do I have? Should I try to open it up and fix it? Can I get a new goto equatorial mount for a heavy tube (21kg / 46lbs) like this for under $1000?
Unrelated: I got this scope in very good condition with mount and everything else (some broken, but included) for $1000 at a local telescope shop. Do you think it was a good deal? How much do you think I can sell it for?
Thank you very much for helping out a noob.
