Subject: Re: v33Ef patch kit -- update here... Sent: Tuesday, January 4, 2005 22:26:32 From: Richard Seymour (firstname.lastname@example.org) Here is the 2nd Edition of my 33Ef patch kit. This one corrects a serious bug in the PEEK code (caused a Proc Trap 2 if you tried it with Autostar Suite or Andrew Johansen's PEC Editor). It also has a set of optional patches at the end to provide PEC capabilities to non-Meade mounts (using DS- and 4504- motor sets). Please read the start of the patch33ef4504.txt file (and the end, if you have non-Meade mounts) and the ReadMe.txt file. have fun --dick
Sent: Sunday, December 26, 2004 18:16:54 From: Richard Seymour (email@example.com) Here's my first edition patch kit for 33Ef. It is lacking PEC training for 4504-type telescopes. That will be added in the future "second edition", but this one has been delayed long enough. For all ETX/LX/DS users, it is complete. This kit adds the 45O4/114EQ to the Autostar's known models list, as well as the usual features of my kits: Display and Edit Training Results, automatic start of satellite tracking, ability to turn Cord Wrap OFF for all models. allows LPI Autoguiding in Alt/Az for all models. Displayed version number becomes "33f" This patch also adds a 'hook' to allow operation with Andrew Johansen's PEC editor program. Please read the included README.txt and the first portion of the patch33ef4.txt files for instructions. If you would prefer to pick-and-choose individual patches (for example, you have a DS-70, which my kit "steals"), you can use Chris Carson's Updater "StarPatch", which provides that feature (it is a free download from his StarGPS site: http://www.stargps.ca (<-- yes, ca not com) This patch kit is fully compatible with Autostar Suite's Remote Handbox have fun --dick
