I've no idea about part numbers.
My opinion is not to skimp on the USB to RS232 connector, some can be a lottery which ones work and which don't.
My experience is that FTDI and Edgeport adaptors are fine, others say the Keyspan is OK. Prolific adaptors, both the real ones and the Chinese fakes, can be unreliable.

I would initially not touch the firmware even if it's not the absolute latest. Get to know the mount, get comfortable with it and then have a look at the levels. I'd evaluate the revision levels by looking on www.nexstarsite.com and if it made sense only then would I consider doing the upgrade.
