When I try to use MCupdate (http://www.celestron...re-updates-v224) it says it can not find the scope.
Current firmware is 5.14
I have been able to update the firmware on the Hand Controller to 4.18 - which the fine print says I "should" be able to update the firmware using the HC port. Perhaps this is not true.
I've tried Celestron Firmware Manager - but it can't see the scope either (I think the mount is too old to use this package).
I've tried Windows 10 64 bit. (under different compatibility modes, no joy).
Window 7 64 bit with a different laptop.
The HCupdate program works just ducky so I know the cable works (I did two successful firmware levels).
This is the USB to serial adaptor I bought - https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It uses a FTDI chip, avoiding the Prolific chip like the plague due to issues with it updating firmware on my motorcycle - and advise from several sites regarding the better quality USB to serial adaptors. Drivers come on a miniture CD and has data indicator LEDS so you KNOW bits are bitting.
Anybody got some ideas?
