Ray,

I always watch the threads on all updates. When do you plan to update the website for the 1.8.2.1? Your attached email with the links does not work and I even tried the embedded links in the email and that didn't work. I think the only place I can download is from the Astro-physics website. that works fine.

thanks.

Also, if you have another moment to answer a very simple question, call it old age or anything else, but when using APCC, and I always get confused right off the bat regarding the tabs that are highlighted for use and the others that are grayed out....which is which? To me its like tornado watch and warning.......reason is I can never simply look and understand which is which and which is available when I am parked or not parked and seems its just not clear enough, don't know if any one has ever commented on this. What about obvious colors to use? Shaded and unshaded just doesn't get me to what i need to see. If they were colorized tabs , if they were Red and green, Red is not available to select, green is, I would know what to use but your tabs are shaded and unshaded, I know, i Know , geez what must one do to satisfy!!!!

Anyway, that's my question.. thanks. SO what I usually get hung up is at initial start up, I go to park 2 then turn on the scope, then pull up APCC, then connect, then I go to park screen and try to figure out what to do, So I'm parked now, do I unpark first, of course , then if so what tab, etc.......I'm usually OK when I'm closing up shop and go to park 2 and then park there. then shut down every thing. Any help or short cuts or understanding this a little better I would appreciate.

thanks. Leon Fasano

The download links are in the post.

Some people wanted direct download links and an announcement when the updates are available. This is that!

I'll update the download link in a few days.
