Hi everybody my name is Jody, I am from Austin TX and I am new to this board. I have been casually messing with my telescope (Meade ETX 70EC) since I got it for Christmas in '99 up until last night when it broke. And guess what Meade quit repairing them a couple of months ago. I have been looking through yellow pages and Google and I have not had any luck finding someone that can repair it. Does anyone out there have any ideas? If I can't get this thing fixed I won't be doing any stargazing any time soon since getting a new scope would be pretty impossible right now. Please help!!
