CGEM EQ hand control software updating

The membership database is currently undergoing upgrading/testing. Web functions that involve an interface with the member database (webobs, etc.) may experience intermittent problems. We hope to have this issue resolved within 24 hours (by 5pm Eastern Time on October 1st or 12:00 UT). Thank you for your patience.

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.
