Hello all. Everything I owned that had anything to do with astronomy was submerged under 14 feet of salt water when Hurricane Katrina destroyed my home of
thirty years. The only thing I recovered was my Celestron (tasco) 114 mm goto scope. The tube was a little messed up but the mirror is still in good shape and I
found one eye piece. That's a start! I totally disassembled and cleaned all the electronic boards and they all appear to be ok. The servos are shot, the saltwater ate
the brush springs and bushings. Can anyone tell me where I can find servos for this scope? I will also need some guidance on testing the hand controller and related
boards. Thanks Yarb
