v22eR now on meade's website
- Dated 07/06/01 ... version 22eR. for 497 Autostars
(and it'll reportedly turn 495's into 497's)
You will also need (if you don't have it) Updater A2.4
Download and unpack/install the Updater,
then download and unpack the new ROM files.
Then place both new rom files into the Updater's
Ephemerides sub-sub-sub folder.
c:\program files\meade\autostar\autostar Update\ephemerides )
Then connect your Autostar and start the Updater.
If you wish to retain existing "user bodies" (Sats, Comets, Asts, etc)
you will need to click it to [get ephemerides FROM autostar].
** note: this does NOT save Tours. You have to reselect them
for Autostardom from the Updater's Tours screen
The [send new software] button pushes the new program to the Autostar.
** this will take 35 minutes!! DO NOT TRY TO USE YOUR PC DURING
THAT PERIOD (walk away... walk the dog... walk the goldfish...
trust me on this one)
The [send ephemerides to Autostar] sends the User Bodies and tours.
After the download is finished, you will need/want to do:
Setup > Reset [enter]
Telescope model selection (really -select- it)
Setup > Telescope > Calibrate [enter]
Setup > Telescope > Az Train and Alt Train
(yes, it's a 15 minute investment, but it pays off)
