Hey AL, Yeah I need to start from scratch, collimation etc,,, plus every neighbor had every interior and exterior light on last night,,, but the mount is sweet... Oh yes, when the full moon comes up they turn them off LOL... Have you downloaded thay fimware (31.13?) from team celestron for cogging I think? I tried but my computer tries to open with I-tunes... Have to figure that out. Thank you again for all your help, Kasey And will dust things off

If you don't have cogging problems with the DEC axis there is no need to update the firmware.

I should say there is no reason to run a beta firmware.

derik at team celestron is close to making the latest beta a final release so I would just wait on that upgrade. I am using the version right before 31.13 or something and honestly have not run PEC or PEMPRO yet to see if it improves... I always guide so not much of a need anyhow as with the mallincam it's rare to need to go over 3 min exposures

The firmware was designed to solve the DEC cogging issue that only showed up when trying to guide. If your mount guides fine you don't need it.

Thank you Al and Mark,
Well could never get it to work so never updated. I am really behind the power curve on computers; I told my wife that these guys are really intelligent, they cover everything from computers, electronics, physycs, math, astronomy, photography, etc etc..
I did have a rare expereince tho, first night after getting mount had 1 night of good viewing..... I beat the storm by one day LOL...
