This contains the full current "usual" set of enhancements: Alibility to display and edit Drive Training results Replaces the DS-70 with the 4505 (a GEM mount) Adds a PEEK (:EPxxxx#) command for compatibility with Andrew Johansen's PEC Editor ( http://members.optusnet.com.au/johansea/ ) Optional features: Automatic start-of-satellite-pass tracking (instead of the beep) CordWrap can be turned Off for all models Allows LPI/DSI to Autoguide in Alt/Az as well as Polar Can skip the date/time/daylight prompting at power-up (for remote operation). This kit also has optional sections to allow PEC Training on scopes with non-Meade final gearing, with 100, 130, 180, 359 and 360 tooth final gears. There's a ReadMe.txt file on "how to patch", and the start of the PatchXXXX.txt file describes how to activate/block the optional sections. This kit will also be included in the next StarGPS/StarPatch patch kit as well. ( http://www.stargps.ca ) have fun --dick
