I currently use a Virtuoso Skywatcher without the Synscan hand controller for a project.
I'm communicating from the computer to the mount directly with a serial connection.
The problem is, I accidentally entenred the bootloader mode of the mount, and now it doesn't work anymore. (Can't even control it manually)
I'm guessing I have to update the motor controller firmware but I don't know if I can without the SynScan controller and I don't know if I the Skywatcher Allview firmware is suitable.
Does someone has any experience on this ?
Thanks you very much.
As mentioned previously I'm the extremely proud new owner of this 'scope, and i cant believe what a difference it has made over my previous 'scope. The bands on Jupiter are crystal, even in my light polluted garden, and with poor seeing. Its amazing!
Anyway to my question. I'm looking to get a few bits to make my enjoyment of this scope even better, and was wondering if anyone could help or add to my list:
Power Supply. With this i am torn between the standard Celestron/Skywatcher tank, which i think should work out of the box, or spend a bit more on the Tracer Lithium Power pack, which i am unsure about if they have all the leads required. Any advice here would be fantastic.
Some lens cleaner (see previous post). I'm also tempted to get the various bits to attach my Cannon DLSR to, just to see what i am capable of.
I bought it with the Celestron 1.25'' lens kit, so i have some ok EPs and filters to start with.
Anything else i am missing, or should definitely add?
Thanks in advance
