Meade DS 2000 lense broken

I inherited a Meade DS series model telescope, but the main lense is broken. Where can I find a replacement lens? Thanks!

Hi

Sorry to hear that. First place to try is Meade, of course, but I doubt they will sell you just an objective/mirror and even if you found something aftermarket, probably wouldn't be cost effective, given the price of a new DS 2000. You might try finding a used DS of the same model and try to make one scope from two and have some spare parts left over. try Meade, first, though.
