Description

Go Wireless with your Meade LX200 or LX400 (formally known as RCX) telescope 

 

Now you can operate your LX200 or LX400 telescope from more than 100 feet away without wires! Just plug the wireless receiver into the handbox port of the drive base, turn on the Wireless AutoStar II controller and you'll have complete, tether-free control of every feature of your telescope. No more cords to get in the way!


The new Wireless Autostar II system uses radio signals instead of infrared, so you won't even have to be in direct line of sight for operation. And each controller has its own, separate communication code so any number of astronomers can observe together with Wireless AutoStar II controllers and not interfere with each other.


The latest in technology from Meade, the black-clad Wireless Autostar II controller features enhanced ergonomic design to make it easy on the hands over long periods of use. Buttons are back-lighted with adjustable red glow. Featuring improved tactile response, they send instantaneous commands to the telescope. Those familiar with the corded version of AutoStar will easily master the Wireless AutoStar II with its new, intuitive button arrangement and familiar two-line, sixteen character scrolling LED display.

 

All of the standard functions of the corded controller thats included with your telescope are included in this new controller.  Controller weighs only 5.5 ounces and is powered by 4AA batteries (not included)

 

  • 2-line x 16-character LED display, backlighted in red
  • Atmel 89C451 & PIC16C57 microcontrollers

    A: Unfortunately, the Wireless Autostar does not work on LX90 telescopes. It only works on LX200 GPS and RCX400 scopes.

    A: Yes, the Wireless Autostar will work just fine with an LX200GPS telescope. All you'll need to buy is batteries.

    Q3: What is the HBX software load, e.g. 3.0i...4.2g? Will it come with the latest release from Meade?

    A: The AutoStar II controller comes with the software release that was current at the time of manufacture.

    Q4: Does this operate with the LX200R?

    A: Yes, the Meade Wireless Auto Star II Controller operates the LX200R telescope.
