About Meade

This is a great addition to the Coronado line that offers solar tracking on an affordable AutoStar computer controlled alt-az mount.

Product features include the DS-2000 fork mount and tripod, 497 AutoStar controller, compass with bubble level and universal bracket and screws for mounting the PST, SolarMax 40 and SolarMax 60 scopes.

Simply level the mount, point the scope north, turn the mount on, slew the scope to the sun and hold down the GoTo key to sync on the Sun.

Well designed tripod.


from East Greenwich, Rhode Island  -  Casual/ Recreational

I use this for solar astronomy. The tripod and unit are nicely designed. Personally I would make two very minor changes. Raise the level of the eyepiece/handcontroller holder and invert the plug in port for the hand controller. As it now placed on the unit it is a little difficult to remove the controller plug.

Questions about this item:

Bill G  Tired to get unit to track the sun, did as soon on add but does not track it. I leveled tripod using bubble level and compass in the eyepiece as instructed, turn mount to north, tightened mount, used controller to slew to sun, dead centered it, press the go to key and scope did not follow even close. Anyone have a better description of how to make this track the sun? Any help would be great
