Coiled ETX Power Cable 0.7 - 1.2m

This is a coiled power lead for ETX users which is normally 0.7m long but will extend to over 1.2m to allow the scope to be run from a 12V cigarette lighter socket.

It has a 5A fuse so it could be used with LX or LXD scopes but could be a bit on the short side, so we recommend it for ETX users

(Please note that this is not suitable for ETX60 or ETX70 scopes as these do not have an external power connection)

LXD55 Gear Retaining Screw Upgrade Kit

Awaiting Picture

This kit consists of 6 (2 per axis + 2 spares) replacement grub screws for securing the Aluminium worm drive gear and the Brass motor output gear on the LXD55 motors, these grub screws are made from A2 stainless steel and so can be tightened much better than the Meade originals. So no more loose gears.

The kit also contains 2 Allen keys to fit both the original grub screws and the replacements (both Allen keys are the same size so that you have a spare if the first gets damaged).

These screws are direct replacements for the Meade originals so no alterations to the gears are required in order to fit them.
