"Get off yer horse and drink yer milk" eh ?


Thanks Chris, I'm glad your 'scope appears to be fixed, but more intriguing is the question: why should the HC have needed a re-set to factory settings to achieve the "fix" ?

Best regards,
Tel

Tel, or should we now address you as Shane.

It is odd that the "bug" arose in the first place, I've never done anything clever like reflashing the handset, in fact I don't have a connector for the USB's on either of my computers - wish Celestron would sort that one out with new scopes.

As HAL would say "puzzling isn't it"

Once again many thanks for everyone's advice.

Best regards

Chris

Perhaps not Chris, I assure you; any heroics demanded and I'm the first to run !

The only thing I believe I ever had in common with Shane was his height. He was reported to be about 5'4" wasn't he ? Indeed, rumour had it,that he, (Alan Ladd that is), had either to stand on a box to kiss the heroine or she had to stand in a hole.

But as to the reason for the problem, let's just hope there's no repetition !

Best regards,
Tel
