I found the picture below for updating a system with a StarSense. I wanted to check the firmware for my Celestron motorized focuser. Would I use the same setup and substitute the focuser for the StarSense?

 

Thanks

Celestron says the firmware for the Celestron Focus Motor is handled by CFM, so it should just work if you run CFM while the focuser is connected for normal use, no fancy set-up changes.

If you just want to check the version, without updating anything, then the AUX Bus Scanner can do that for you.  There's a big thread on the scanner here:   https://www.cloudyni...982&hl=+scanner
