Meade AutoStar II Controller

Meade's AutoStar II hand controller system comes with refined astronomy software suitable for operating LX200-ACF, LX600-ACF, and LX850-ACS Meade model telescopes only. The AutoStar II has improved upon the previous model in many ways, such as an expanded 3.5-megabyte memory to support the massive database of celestial objects to track. This collection of 144,000 targets is immediately available on the hand controller screen itself, readily available for slewing to on any night of imaging.

Hardware is correct - software not so much

I ordered this controller because I was having trouble updating my old controller. When I hooked it up, I was disappointed to find out the "new" controller was the same version as the old one. I had to update this one anyway. I understand that these things can sit around on the shelf forever, but when you buy something new, you kind of expect "new".

Meade AutoStar II Controller

I contacted OPT and asked about the compatibility with my older RCX400 scope and was told the unit would be compatible. I placed the order and it arrived in just a few days. It worked perfectly with my telescope.

Meade Auto Guider Controller

Great. Was on back order, but I received it in about 3 weeks. The controller worked great and saved my 17 year old 8" lx200GPS. SCS Westlake, Ohio
