HEQ5 Handset work a Meade LX 10?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I need a handset for my Meade LX 10.

I was wondering whether my Standard HEQ5 Handset would work on the Meade LX 10?

I do not have a Dec motor on the LX 10 so it would need only to work for RA.

What do you think?

Hi graham


Do not do it.

For one they are wired totally different and two they work on totally different systems.

Another point

If you donot have a dec motor installed you will stand a good chance of blowing up either a replacement handset or the mother board.

I am pretty certain the meade set up requires both motors to be connected to enable it to do its start up check.
