  1. Hi, I'm a new user and don't have much experience with stargazing and telescopes yet. But Macs is a topic i know a lot about. And i also recently bought an AZ GTI. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that Sky-Watcher supports Macs but there is a workaround that i have successfully used. There is an OpenSource project named Wine which basically allows Linux and macOS to run certain Windows applications. All I did was to download the free WineBottler software and afterwards the Motor Controller Firmware Loader - Wifi and Firmware and do the following: 1. Open WineBottler and select Advanced 2. Press "select File..." and choose the downloaded "Motor Controller Firmware Loader - Wifi" Windows application 3. Choose "copy file (Program) and all files in the folders to the App Bundle." 4. Be sure to make the app Self-contained by selecting "Include Wine.app, so the user doesn't have to install it." The rest of the configuration should just be left like it is. 5. Press "Install" button and select a name for the application and where to save it. Now you should be able to update the AZ GTI firmware: 1. Turn it on and connect your Mac wirelessly to it 2. Open the newly installed "Motor Controller Firmware Loader - Wifi" application 3. Browse to the Firmware file downloaded from Sky-Watcher 4. Press the Update button That's it ? Cheers! /Brian
