Meade Wireless Autostar II Computer Controller 07582 is a milestone leap in telescope control - now you imagecan operate your Meade LX200ACF, Meade LX200GPS or Meade LX400 ACF Telescope wirelessly! Just plug in the wireless receiver into the handbox port of the drive base, turn on Meade AutoStar II Wireless Controller and you'll have wireless control of every feature of your Meade Telescope. Meade Wireless Autostar-2 uses radio frequency signals instead of infrared, so you won't have to be in direct line of sight for proper operation. Each Meade Autostar-II Telescope Controller 07582 is on a separate communication code so that any number of astronomers observing together using Meade Wireless AutoStar-II Controllers will not interfere with each other.
