Meade LS primer & firmware updates

This Mini SD card is preloaded with all the necessary software to update the firmware of the Meade LS (LightSwitch) telescopes. Each Mini SD card is individually tested on a Meade LS telescope to ensure that it works correctly. This is not a Meade product.

Important: We recommend that you only update your telescope's firmware if there is a real need. If your telescope is operational, there are no significant benefits that warrant an update.

  1. Use a reliable power supply.
  2. Ensure that your Meade LS telescope is switched off.
  3. Insert the mini SD card containing the firmware into the telescope’s mini SD slot.
  4. Switch ON the telescope and follow the instructions on the handset display.
  5. Wait for approximately 30 minutes for the firmware to be updated.
  6. Do not remove the mini SD card or switch off the telescope while updating the firmware or the telescope may need to be returned back to Meade Instruments Inc. for re-flashing.
  7. The AutoStar III hand box will confirm that the software has been updated.
  8. Switch OFF the telescope.
  9. Remove the Mini SD card from the telescope.
  10. The firmware update is now complete.

Caution: Do not plug or unplug the power supply or hand box to/from your telescope while the telescope’s ON/OFF switch is at the ON position.

We are constantly checking the accuracy of the technical data. We are prepared to provide more detailed information on request. Technical data is subject to change without notice.
