Update Celestron SE & Evolution firmware

Post by Bergkamp_ » Sat Nov 24, 2018 4:35 pm

I was searching high and low to update Celestron firmware. I found a very easy way to update the mount and hand controller firmware.

Celestron CFM update via wifi through SkyQ Link.

No need to get any outdated celestron cables.

Do take note for Starsense users, you will need to connect the starsense controller to the PC and starsense camera to usb. Both the controller and camera need to connect to the evolution mount aux port using RJ12. Then you do an update from Celestron Firmware Manager. You can't do this over wireless as you will get error.
