CGEM EQ hand control software updating

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

Anyone might offer us some help here. A BSM is using the older NexStar type hand control. It seems like the CFM firmware manager doesn't "see" the controller? We need to update the mount to the latest HC and MC versions. Does anyone know how to do this using the older hand controllers, or do we have to purchase the newer model controller for the flash upgrades? Prefer not, as it costs around $100, ugh.
