Oh well I used CFM and downloaded the latest firmware and then downloaded this into scope, and than took scope back outside and the sky is now full of clouds. Oh well next time.

Glen,

The 'Boot Loader Invalid pkg 0080' was a common problem with some of the early production NexStar+ hand controllers. Down loading the latest firmware as you have done fixes the problem and you should have no more trouble with the hand controller.

What has happened is that the firmware downloaded is for a GEM EQ mount and not the NXS program for your SE. Try reloading the firmware again, but in the upper LH corner of ther CFM display is the heading "Hand Control". Click on this and you will get a drop down menu. Click on "Mount Types" and then choose the proper mount. Reprogram the HC again and this should fix the problem.

Thanks Stan I self battled my way through this and all is good now, it comes up as Nexstar SE , but I hope it can stay grounded now, will hate to bring it on vacation , without P/C access and have it die,

Cheers Glen

Just a minor glitch. You should be fine from here on out.
