They are available here as patch22et.zip Unzip that, and read the readme file contained therein. The patch file itself also has instructions. From the included readme file: Patch Kit for 2.2Et Provides: (1) Az and Alt Training display/editing (in Setup>Train> scroll sequence) If you scroll down from Alt Train, you will reach EDIT/Az Train and EDIT/Alt Train Pressing ENTER to select those items will show you the stored value generated by your last Training session. You may make notes, and/or change them. Press ENTER for the changes to be written to memory. You will need to cycle power for the changes to take effect. (2) Limit maximum Elevation during GoTo (under Utilities>Max Elev) To avoid damage to rear-port-mounted equipment, this feature sets an upper limit to the elevation (Dec) the telescope will go during a GoTo. If the target requires entering the "danger zone", the Autostar will Warn you, giving you the choice of pressin g [goto] agian to proceed, or Mode to cancel the motion. The value you enter is in arcminutes. This table gives angles: 90 deg = 5400 min 60 deg = 3600 min 80 deg = 4800 min 50 deg = 3000 min 70 deg = 4200 min 40 deg = 2400 min It will be remebered across power-ups. You do NOT need to power-cycle. (3) Lower elevation limit for Satellite AOS point (Under Object>Satellite) This adds a menu item between Satellite/Delete and Satellite/Edit It shows as Satellite/AOS Elev: If you press enter to select it, you are shown the lowest angle the Autostar will use for predicting a satellite pass's start. The value is in degrees. It will be remembered across power-ups. You do NOT need to power-cycle. (4) Satellite AOS (rise) time displayed to the second (5) Optional: satellite tracking automatically starts when counter hits zero (no beep) (6) Optional: Cord Wrap on/off available for all models (7) Version number will change to 2.2Et.
