I decided today to update the firmware on my LX80's hand controller. Couldn't find any instructions on the AutoStar Suite software other than a quick start guide. Looks like the HC firmware can be updated from there but there are 2 different #497 HC's listed. Also, does the HC just need to be attached to the computer or does it need to be attached to the mount also? Are there instructions anywhere that I've just missed?

Thanks!

DuiA1,

You can check the firmware version with the hand controller. I doubt that any mounts shipped have the new version. Just found out I need to have surgery tomorrow on both my legs so I'll be out of commission for at least the next 2 or 3 weeks. Maybe I need to can all this for a nice pair of binoculars. Good luck with the upgrade. Be sure to read Andrew's posts pertaining to the latest firmware.

Good luck with your health. It's no.1. I'm running A3S1 and I think Andrew mentioned they're up to A3S4 . That's a lot of updates in a few months.
