I may be wrong but I don't think you can update the telescope object locator like that. You can use Starry Night to control the telescope from your PC and use the starry night database to point at objects.

I would think that any update comes fro Orion, and usually software updates are functional not data.

Orion are fairly well known for not supplying spares and I cannot see why software would be any different.

Thanks. I think I'll drop note to Orion Technical Support. You see, as a part of the pack I had received when I bought the light bucket, was a Starry Night disk. I have a feeling that I'm going to be disappointed with the answer they give me.
