Our astronomical society recently inherited an old Meade 8” SCT telescope. It looks like an early 2080 model.
http://www.telescopebluebook.com/sct/meade.htm#8INCH
This model is powered via a custom 115v lead and unfortunately it didn’t come with the scope. It looks as though this is a custom power socket with three round pins (the centre pin is horizontally offset from the two side pins) and it is no longer produced by Meade. There is no 12v input for this scope, so if we can’t get hold of one of the leads we can’t use it. In fact, we can’t even test it to see if the drive works.
1 - Has anyone got a power lead for one of these scopes that we could have/buy/borrow?
2 –Does anyone know the wiring sequence for one of these plugs?

Thanks

One person that I have worked with on an older classic LX-200. He might be able to help you.

His name is Ron Sampson. You can contact him at rsampsonus@yahoo.com.
