This would actually be more for Dick than you.

I was wondering (hoping) if the ETX80 could be added to the autostar
(like the 4504 is) for use with the DSI/LPI software. If so and you need
any data from the ETX80 let me know. I'll be glad to help if I can).

Mike here: Yes, you can use the Autostar #497 (which is the one that the Autostar Suite software requires) with the ETX-80. I would suspect that a current version of the ROM would recognize the ETX-80 when connected.

The attached patch kit doesn't add the model -name-
(you can use the ETX90 or the ETX70), but it -will- add
a necessary delay during the boot-up cycle so that
the Autostar will properly use the built-in clock.

Meade -has- stated that the ETX80 will be in the next
497 firmware update.

have fun
