I received an email from someone with an LX200 14 inch with a wireless controller that is not working, asking me for advice.  I would not recognize one of those if it ran up and bit me, but said I would post here and see if anyone has any ideas of where to start trying to troubleshoot the problem.

 

Anyone with any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Bill,
I didn't know Meade made a wirlesss paddle, I was under the impression that the only wireless connectivity available from Meade was via Stella using WIFI. Does anyone no different?

Thanks, Rick! 

 

I thought it was something like that, but did not know if it was separate or if it actually came with the scope.

Bill,
Just a note, the wireless Autostar model# 07582 is no longer in production.

That is what I figured.  I am thinking they could get the new thing Meade has and use an old smart phone.
