Unfortunately there is now so much variant of the LX200 protocol that every time I make a fix for a specific variant it break another. And in this case this is clearly a bug in the FS2, the Meade protocol manual, either 2002 or 2010 version, show no space here.

For this reason I have totally removed this direct LX200 driver in the current 4.1 beta version.

Your best option is to install the last ASCOM Platform and the corresponding LX200 driver available from .
There is currently 6 different variant available in this page and one of them specifically mention the FS2.
