Product QuestionsIs the Audiostar compatible with my ETX-105 purchased around 2001? My Meade Autostar 497 has stopped working.i picked up a used LDX-55 mount is this the controller i need or is there a better model? do you have a used one thanksQuestion by: Stephen Clark on Apr 25, 2015 1:26:00 PMHi again!
A second question please: will the Audiostar firmware support PEC? Or will it be necessary to upgrade it to have PEC?
MichelWill the audiostar II work with a 10-year old Meade Polaris DS 114 scope? I have a 492 controller and I downloaded the 505 Autostar suite software into my computer.Question by: Goat65 on Sep 1, 2014 12:46:05 AMUnfortunately, no. The Autostar 492/494/495 and 497 Autostar models are all self contained computer units, while the Autostar II is a distributed architecture system where part of the "brain" is in the controller and part is in the LX200/400/600/850 mount itself. It will not function on a telescope mount set up to take the standard Autostar as it is missing the extra boards inside the mount.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Sep 1, 2014 3:33:58 AM
