I am currently running an LX200 with a 479 hanbox and it currently had firmware ver 4.2g running. Are there any advantages to attempting a firmware upgrade? If so where other than meade's site where might i find it?

Thanks

Truman

Check the Meade site, but if memory serves, there haven't been any meaningful updates in a long time.

 

At any rate, my philosophy? If the scope is working right, leave the firmware alone. That's a bitter lesson many have learned.

There hasn't been a significant upgrade in a very long time, and there really hasn't been a need for one. If it t'ain't broke...
