This version of Autostar Updater adds support for the new Meade LX850 and LX600 telescopes. AutoStar Updater 6.0 also fixes bugs discovered in the previous release.

Bug fixes include:
  • Fixes issue of retrieving and loading user data and guided tours into the 497EP/AudioStar hand controllers.
  • Correctly accesses the Ephemerides directory when installing into a non-default location.

Will there be a version for Mac (OS X)..?

Thousands of Autostar Tours are part of my Clear Skies Observing Guides (www.clearskies.eu) and with more and more people using Macs nowadays, it would only make sense for an OS X Autostar updater & Tour uploader app to appear.
The Autostar system is unrivaled in my opinion, yet there's always room for improvement.
