    Default lx200 classic repairs



    Reinstalling components on 8 and 10 inch classics.(all components repaired by Ron Sampson) I am missing some nylon washers on the PCB and could only find rubber in same size.I hope that works
    Can anybody recommend a good cold weather grease for the gears.
    Also I am ditching the power supplys that come with the scope. I have a Kendrik 33amp hour battery with the 18v circuit. Can this be considered a regulated power supply.
    Both scopes popped smoke upon startup several years ago. Last time I looked thru these scopes was 10 years ago.
    Any other tips before startup would be great.
