Subject:	my laptop will not drive my ETX 125
-Starry Night Pro 4.5 says it is an unrecognized meade telescope
Sent: Thursday, June 12, 2008 04:38:23 From: Terry Gober ( I have a Meade etx 125 and am trying to run it using starry night pro version 4.5. I can update the handbox but starry night says its an unrecognized meade telescope. I cant seem to find drivers for it. It is a 2003 model with a 497 autostar. Any suggestions? Thank you Terry
Mike here: Starry Night Pro should have come with all the software needed to connect to the AutoStar. Since you have a working connection to update the AutoStar there must be a problem with Starry Night. You should probably contact their Tech Support. You might check the Baud setting; try 9600. Or you could try ScopeDriver or Astroplanner to see if the problem is with Starry Night; see the Accessory Reviews: Software page for more info.
