I have a Meade 2080 with LX3 drive like the one in this topic:

I'm trying to locate a replacement for the Model 36 hand controller. Mine appears to need repair or replacement as one of the declinition buttons that command the dec motor is not working. I'd like to either replace the hand controller or locate one of the aftermarket drive correctors that I recall seeing offered for the LX3 drive.

Thanks for any pointers / hints.

You might try Ron Sampson. He gets in older LX-200 scopes and reworks them. It is a part time business for him. If anyone would be able to answer your question, he probably can. His email address is: rsampsonus@yahoo.com

Hope this helps,
