Hi all. I have a meade 10 sct. I think it's the 2120. I misplaced the trunk key and can't unlock it. I also need a suggestion for a replacement finder scope.


Tia,

As this scope has been discontinued for several years I seriously doubt Meade would have a key for the trunk.You may have to go to a local lock smith and see if they can open in for you.

Any 8 x 50 finder scope would be suitable.You can google for 1.Meade has a good one.Explore scientific makes a good one.There are so many different choices it would be hard to recommend one for your needs.The best thing to do is google one and see what fits your needs best.

I have a drawing of the key that was used on these cases and I got it from the LX3-LX5-LX6 Yahoo Users Group in their files section. You may be able to cut one from a small piece of sheet metal, or even out of plastic. I never had to make one, just had the drawing.
