Update Firmware on my 6" ASGT?
      #5658772 - 02/02/13 07:35 PM

I am having some trouble trying to update my firmware on my CG-5. I have a Nexstar controller, it doesn't say Nexstar+, so i'm guessing its the older one. I downloaded Celestron's Firmware Manager, but it doesn't detect the scope and says I need to power it on while holding down the Celestron logo key and the menu key at the same time. I don't have the celestron logo on my keypad and my menu isn't in the same location its showing in the picture. How am I supposed to go about updating a normal Nexstar HC and MC firmware?

You need the older Celestron update program HC Updater.

...and the MC Updater;

I might run in some W7 compatibility mode, otherwise contact Celeston.

The HC and MC programs will not run on W8. You need to use the compatibility mode and run in 'Previous versions'.
