  1. It’s a pity that Eagle Creek Observatory link is mainly unusable now. What sub links that are working are very good, and if all the sub links worked it would be an excellent resource.
  2. Okay, I found them! They were in the zip file which I hadn’t undone! I copy them below AZ-GTi motor controller firmware version 3.16: Version 3.16 Nov 5, 2018 1. Fix a problem which might cause firmware update failing. Version 3.14 Sep 25, 2018 1. Fix a problem that causes SSID "ESP_xxxxxx" broadcasted instead of "SynScan_xxxx", and mount not working with SynScan App. Version 3.13 July 20, 2018 1. Change timer for defaulting WiFi to 1 hour 2. Force to use AP only mode if the WiFi module cannot join a valid WiFi network in STA only or AP-STA mode. Version 3.12 Jun 22, 2018 1. Fixed a bug that might cause intermittent UART communication error Version 3.10 Oct 17, 2017 1. Fix a bug which prevents the build-in Wi-Fi module working in STA only mode. 2. If the access point for the STA mode is not valid, turn on build-in Wi-Fi's access point automatically. V03.07 1. Fix the may set out wrong response to hand controller due to TX buffer overwritten by ADC Data storing V03.06 1. Fix the known problems in version 3.05. 2. Reverse counting direction of azimuth auxiliary encoder. V03.05 1. Modify code structure to support multiple mounts. V03.03 1. Motor Encoder Hardware changed from 45 counts to 90 counts. The maximum accuracy is improved. 2. Read back MC version : 3.3.A5 V03.02 1. Add function that turn off WiFi if there is no any WiFi traffic within 15 minutes after MiniAZ powered up If any WiFi traffic happen within that 15 minutes, the WiFi will be kept on unitl MiniAZ have been powered off. 2. Restore WiFi manufactory setting if there is no any operation occured with f4 hours after MiniAZ powered up. The operation includes commands from Hand controller, App or WiFi AT command from App. After the manufactory restored, the WiFi will be kept on unitl MiniAZ have been powered off. 3. Add new LED indications. LED is solid lit while MiniAZ is power up but the WiFi is off. LED blinks once while MiniAZ is power up and WiFi is power up and wait for connecting. LED blinks twice while MiniAZ is power up and WiFi is connected. LED blinks three times while MiniAZ is in bootloader mode. 4. Read back MC version : 3.2.A5 V03.01 add: 1. Add in Motor control command to read back WiFi Mac Address 2. Read back MC version : 3.1.A5 V03.00 add: 1. Read back MC version : 3.0.A5
  3. Hi Peter I’ve just read this thread and your reply, and am intrigued by you mentioning firmware release notes; I can’t find them anywhere! I know this thread is a bit old now, but if you, or anybody, can point me in the direction of these release notes I’d be a very happy boy! Max
  4. I appreciate the quick reply, thanks. I’ll just have to hope mine’s okay then!
  5. Hi Did you ever get an answer to this question? I ask because I’ve just bought a second hand one and would be very interested to know. Cheers
  6. Yes, I’m really looking forward to playing with Jeremy. I’ve got a lousy cold at the moment so will defer the pleasure until I can really enjoy it!
  7. Well I take back all I said, I’d no sooner posted my last post than the postman arrived with it!! Brilliant service. I haven’t opened it yet because it’s a crimble present, although I’m sorely tempted. Watch this space!
  8. I bought one of these yesterday, which I’m told should arrive Monday, but I’ll believe that when I see it. Anyway, I’m following this thread with interest. Slightly concerned that the az needs locking so hard; is this common? I’ve decided, reluctantly, that I won’t be installing the beta firmware yet as it appears it’s still problematical. I don’t have a SynScan handset so will be using my iPhone and/or my iPad. From what I’ve read so far I think it’s highly likely that I’ll be taking part in further discussions about this beastie ? Max
  9. Hi there I just came across your post when doing a search for AZ GTI. I’m slightly puzzled about your ‘Never’ option. I have an iPhone 6 and on checking found that the Never option is certainly there? Have you got the latest iOS installed? Max
  10. Also found this. Have a look at the drawing in one of the included pics. In some ways this is similar to the Tasso Starguide 114 which I collimated a week or two back. But with that there’s a central locking screw and three adjusting screws. Also there’s a correcting lens in the eyepiece tube. https://www.ebay.ph/itm/Mizar-CX150-Astronomical-Catadioptric-Telescope-D-153-mm-Fl-1310mm-/173661361395
  11. Hi there I see nobody has answered you yet, and I’m afraid I can’t help either, perhaps it’s because it’s such an uncommon scope. It looks beautifully made. Have you found this link yet? https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/224896-a-very-rare-tasco-find-i-got-the-16t/
  12. Can I ask why there could not, for example, be a sub forum under Equipment called Vintage or suchlike? It seems to me to be no different to having Binoculars there. It wouldn’t require separate membership or cause any other problems. As I’m sure all of you know, on CloudyNights it’s called Classic Telescopes. Just an idea.
  13. Well done Andy! I remember you now, so perhaps I’m not as senile as I thought I was!
  14. Then I apologise for my suggestion. I have to confess to being surprised that nobody else has shown interest, clearly I’m on my own here. I stand quietened.
  15. How about a Vintage heading under Equipment Mark? That would seem simple enough.
