For those that have a Synscan handset for an EQ mount - Theres a new software download available at the Sky-Watcher site. Version 3.25.

This fixes the problems with setting the time where the handset can be pretty picky about whether you use the up or down arrow.

It also has a bug fix for the PAE function (wot dat ? - no idea myself but some of you brainy people will know)

pointing accuracy enhancement - sort of says it all

Increase accuracy of gotos by adding more reference points in the alignment routine, probably good to do for big slews across the sky, I reckon I have used it on my EQ6

I'll let you guy's run 3.25 for a while before I do the upgrade! Seems every new Rev has a new bug in it!
