I've been told by Meade that the DS-2XXX series scopes are not compatible with the Autostar #495/497 controller. As for the DS-2130, if the gear ratios are changed to +01.15500 for azimuth and +00.84057 for altitude the high end autostars work fine.

Update: Meade has released new firmware, V. 22et, for the Autostar which now includes support for the new DS-2xxx series scopes.
