Manufacturers will keep an eye on this forum, so any ideas you have about improvements to the product will not fall on deaf ears.

After upgrading to v1.2tc, BOTH units are freezing at the "Starting MySky" page. I have to remove batteries to restart - no resets! Firmware v1.2tc
At least I could run the demo with the old software!
Cheap buttons, China made.
Come on Meade!

A good idea gone way bad and cost way more than what the price tag. In fact, I don't remember reading much good anywhere about them. It would be my suggestion they all be recalled until the problems would be resolved.

Right out of the box, GPS acquisitions were very difficult. All was fixed going to the latest firmware v1.2tc...
Since then, I have been extremely happy with the performance of this device. I am a newcomer to astronomy/astrophotography and have maximized my learning of the night sky in the shortest amount of time with the help of mySKY! It is also a nice alternative to the Autostar GOTO capabilities. There's something about pointing at an object in the sky with a "gun" and having the scope go there is an instant after "pulling the trigger"!
With 17,000+ of these devices out there, I feel this is a case of only hearing about the bad reports and assuming that the "cricket sounds" are happy customers too busy utilizing their tools during the night!

But this forum is for both MySky and SkyScout. So which is supposed to be the subject of this particular thread?
