StarSense AutoAlign Firmware Update
      #6080346 - 09/14/13 12:51 PM

I received my second StarSense AutoAlign unit yesterday. Unfortunately, the HC has an old version of the firmware. The menus do not match the manual. How do you update the firmware? I tried the CFM utility, but it does not recognize the HC.

The build number is the year followed by the day number. This works fine for 13226 because day 226 is August 14 but 13290 gives a day in October and that doesn't match the date, or the version.

The 1.4.x versions were very old and certainly nothing like complete. I saw one on the 24th May that was 1.4.143.

I suggest getting back to Celestron, also posting on TeamCelestron. If you don't get a response on TC I can rattle their cage. There's a special version of the CFM that will update the HC and the firmware code but it's not mine to pass on.
