Quote:My SynScan is at V3.24 and I am planing to upgrade the firmware. I have downloaded the V3 of the Firmware down loader. Has the new V3 of the down loader improved the usb to serial communications? I have had to use an old pc with an actual serial port in the past to down load properly. Has there been any bugs seen with the new V3.27?I don't want to end up in a situation of "Fix it till it's broke" kind of deal. Right now every thing is working fine for me so I am a bit wary of any new upgrades.Thanks.JJ

I am waiting for a reply to see if the latest version
will fix the polar telescope LED problem.
The LED can't be adjusted in brightness
for the reticule from the handset.

Quote: I doubt you'll get a response from Sky-Watcher if you used the customer support feature on their website. I didn't get any response to my queries last summer even though the issue was a real one. My problem at the time was the directional keys becoming useless after using the SAO catalog. They fixed the problem with the latest patch, but I never got any response from SkyWatcher support.
