    Default Meade lx90 power cable problem - heating up



    Hi,
    Ive just bought my first telescope a used meade 8" lx90, however I'm having some issues with the power cable,
    - probably not the original as seemed a bit loose, it was working only at certain angles when plugged in, now seems to just heat up!
    So does anyone know of the exact size / type of plug adapter I should purchase to fit? - just to be clear the bit which plugs into the base of telescope! (running of a power bank / cigarette lighter)
    thanks in advance
    Chris

    The plug which goes into the base of the LX-90 is the old Radio Shack type 'N'. Outer Diameter 5.5mm, Inner Diameter 2.5mm. They are available on Ebay/Amazon.
