Hi everyone, I have a big issue with my Skywatcher Virtuoso also known as the Orion starblast autotracker.

I'm communicating in serial with my computer directly to the Mount (No Hand Controller).

Everything worked like a charm until i accidentally set it up in bootloader mode. Now the mount doesn't respond anymore even if handled manually.

 

I'll be forever grateful if someone can tell me :

 

If there is a way to just leave this mode

 

If i should upload a motor controller firmware and if so which one (I also don't know if you can update firmwares without the hand controller)

 

If it is possible to just reset the motor board.

 

Many many thanks !
