Hi, does anyone have any info as in a manual or install instructions they would care to share? I have a used scope and would like to know how to adjust it, remove it, etc. Thanks

Not sure why you would remove it. If it is already installed on the scope, then all you need is the LX200 manual to see how to use it.

It is controlled via the LX200 hand controller -- there is a Focus button (I believe it is key 5 -- you press that key and the up/down keys to activate it. The LX200 Classic manual is still on the Meade website.

I have one on my LX200-classis, and have used it for nearly 15 years -- never had an issue with it. Manual focusing shakes the tube alot -- though not perfect, the electric focuser has less shake...

Forgot to mention, the cord that is attached to the focuser gets pluggedd into the scope base -- a port is labeled 'Focuser'

Thanks. The 1205 is run with a separate handset controller. I never use it and dislike alot of cords in my way. My question is in looking for the operating instructions, which show a schematic of the install.
