How to use: start hyperterminal, set the port to 9600 baud, no flow control (see http://www.weasner.com/etx/autostar/as_testing.html for instructions) Then start up the Autostar in Safe Mode (hold ENTER and SCROLL DOWN as power is applied). Have it attached to the telescope, too. Type a control-D, and it should echo a "?" or ">" Then send the attached (tiny) binary file via Hyperterminal's Transfer / Send Text File That sends the file without trying to impose a protocol. You should get a "Y" and a version number back. Now type an "I" into Hyperterminal's screen to trigger the Autostar to reboot in full-reset mode. (Don't include the quotation marks) (warning: the first thing a hard reset does -is- a Calibrate motion) good luck --dick
