Does anyone know if there would be any problems using rechargable nickel-cadium or nickel-metal hydride batteries in an LX200 GPS. The instruction manual did'nt address it, however, I thought there were certain applications unsuited for using these types of batteries. Thanks

Hi Alden, I've been reading up on both types of batteries to see if I could find an answer, but I don't see why they'd be a problem. I'd go with NiMH batteries mostly because NiCad batteries perform terribly when cold. If you are unsure, give Meade a ring and ask. Make sure you get the name and extension of the person you talk too...that way when your scope explodes after they told you it wasn't a problem.. you'll have something to go on wink
