AUTOSTAR SOFTWARE ARCHIVE

Last updated: 8 April 2013

Welcome to the Autostar Software Archive page. This page is your source for older versions of the Meade Autostar software. Neither the submitter, myself, nor Meade Instruments are responsible for any damage or problems caused by using any of the software archived here. Downloads have not been virus-checked and are supplied as-is for those users who feel they need to regress their Autostar #495, #497, #497EP, or AutoStar III (through version 1.2g) to a previous version. You will need an "unzip" utility for your PC or Macintosh to unzip some of the archives. The official Autostar Software source remains the Meade web site.

For information on updating from old Autostar versions to the current version, see the Important Download Information page. (2/16/02)
