Please can anyone help me about how to update my Autostar handset on a Windows 10 machine? I want to see the ISS station but I have to update the Database in the handset
I have asked Meade Customer Service this:
When will it be possible to get a USB to RS-232 (Serial) Adapter (SKU: 07507) with at Windows 10 driver, or even better a new solution where it’s possible to get rid of that old serial port and connect directly the Autostar to the USB port on the laptop.
They answer is this:
We have currently done no development with Windows 10, and have no set schedule to do so at present.
There is no need to make an update to a telescope working normally however; there are no enhancements or changes to performance you would notice. Also, there is always a chance in the update process that power or connection is interrupted or data lost and this can cause problems where you would need to send your scope to Meade for it to be resolved.
So have anyone of you solved this problem?
Thanks a lot.
