From:	Charles Washington (
I am very new to astronomy but have decided to have a good start. I have
an ETX125.

To compliment this I have purchased an LPI camera and with this came the
Autostar suite.

It is here that I seem to have fell at the first hurdle I have loaded
the software and printed of the manuals.

On of the first things explained in the manual is how to turn the
starmap on and off. On the toolbar I have the box which should contain
this toggle but it is empty I also am missing the telescope one as well.
Could you please advise me as to whether this is a common problem and if
there is a patch for it. I have trawled your site and MIGHTY it really
is a project that any person would truly be proud of but have not found
any reference to my problem. Thank you in advance for any info you might
be able to direct me to.

Kind regards Charles Washington      (uk)
Mike here: You likely need to get the update. It is mentioned in my article "Autostar Suite on a Macintosh"; there is also a downloads page for the Autostar Suite. Both are on the Helpful Information: Autostar Info page. Also, PLEASE read the Email Etiquette item on the ETX Site; your message was originally DELETED UNREAD as SPAM due to the ambiguous subject line. Thanks for understanding.

From:	Richard Seymour (
On 12-Nov-2004, Meade posted a combined update for the
Autostar Suite (StarMap), the LPI and the DSI.

It is now version 3.18  (previous update was 3.16a, release was 3.08)

for the download, and read the sub-pages for what got better.

This update allows you to use the LPI under the DSI's control program.

have fun
