I purchased an LX90 8” ACF last November, 2014 and have been working with it since and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it. It does everything that is supposed to and was a major step up for me from my ETX90 which I still own and will probably keep. Anyway the reason why I am writing this today is that with all the good things about this telescope that there are, there are a couple of things that are not so good. The issues I have had are with the power adapters, the Meade #607 DC Power Cord and Meade Universal A/C Adapter. The problem with both of them is that both cable adapter ends don’t fit in the power receptacle very tightly at all on the telescope base and from time to time they disengage while slewing and I lose all power. This, to say the least is very frustrating. I have had to JERYY RIG them to keep them working. Has anyone else had this issue with these adapters?
Also the cord the goes from the adapter to the telescope on the Universal adapter is so short that it’s almost worthless.
I guess I don’t understand Meade logic on these as they are not very practical for the intended application.
