Firmware Versions on the Astro Fi Series

Astro Fi scopes have processors in the base of the scope in a section known as the motor control (MC).  Read this for step by step instructions on upgrading the motor control firmware.

Astro Fi scopes are sold without a hand control requiring the owner to use either the SkyPortal and SkySafari app on their smartphone or tablet to run the scope.  But, the Astro Fi mount can work with an optionally purchased NexStar+ or StarSense hand control.  Read this for step by step instructions on upgrading the hand control firmware. 

Celestron has posted an official document detailing all firmware versions for the hand control and motor control:
