Here is a real puzzle, I have been looking all over trying to find info on this Meade 2080 LX Drive System with a five prong plug for the hand controller. The Serial number 803887 puts it between the Meade2080 1983/1984 LX/LX2 according to the registry. It has a computer style 3 pronged 120 volt plug on the bottom of the mount. It is not a quartz drive, but the motor runs when pugged in even without the the hand controller. The inside has primitive connections for the hand controller that looks like a rates nest and only minor resisters connecting to the power supply and motor. Has any one seen pictures of this unit and what type of hand controller that goes with it? It is all original and the metal case for the mount has not been modified so I assume this must be a very limited addition mount that was developed before the quartz drives became common. Anyone having a clue - would be much appreciated!
