I might have to install Windows 32 bit and du dualboot Windows 7 64 bit with Windows 7 32 bit. Is it safe to upgrade the firmware on Celestron Skyscout?

I did dual boot Windows 64 bit and Widows 7 32 bit.
Now the program works on my Windows 7 32 bit partition.


If only I knew that it was safe to upgrade skyscout. I might have to look for info myself

Try Canadian Tire. I got mine for $100 earlier this year.

Celestron has not upgraded the SkyScout firmware in years, so it's unlikely you'll need to fool with it...

"hi how can I make software skyscout work win7 64 home"

Download the XP mode for windows 7. It is free from Microsoft. It works great.

For me, to actually update the firmware I had to use a family
members XP machine to update. The software had no problems
working on my Vista machine. I think it was the drivers that
were the issue.

It seems to work in x64 Windows 8.
