I don't know why but the built in ccd camera for the telescope doesn't work no more, I have to do manual alignment, so I would be careful about upgrading

Any reason not to use the current Autostar updater ver 5.9.3 (08/06/11)?

Ver 16A has been current since 8/18/10.

If you tried to upgrade and it did not work, well, you don't have anything tp loose, try it again. You may have had some problem when you tried the first time. Still though, I do not understand some peoples need to upgrade unless you are having a problem. If it is not broke, don't fix it.

I upgrade it, and I do manual alignment and that works for me, Jupiter is fine and Moon and other deep-sky objects, I just don't want to get into trouble if someone else makes a mess on their telescope, that is why I removed the thread
