I've searched about but am not too familiar with the SynScan but think I know that the SynScan I recently received with the SkyView Pro GoTo upgrade kit is not one that can accept a firmware update but would like to see if my conclusions are correct.
If I check the firmware ver. in 'Utility' it shows 'SynScan EQ Ver. 03.23'.
If I put the HC in Update mode it shows: 'SynScan Update Ver. 1.3' Is this the Ver. number that indicates the firmware can't be updated? What is this ver. number referring to?
From Orion there is a ver. 'v3_39_05.ssf firmware for the Ver. 3 controller which I have by looking at the pictures of the various model controllers.
If I use the firmware loader v3.3 it finds the serial comm port (3) and says trying to connect to a SynScan but then fails to connect with the SynScan in update mode. I am using the cable on a serial port of my desktop.
Thanks for info.
