Firmware: SynScan Relay V4, Version 4.2

This firmware allows the SynScan V4/V5 hand controller to work as a transceiver between a computer's serial port and a Skywatcher GOTO telescope mount's hand control port. It is for updating the motor controller's firmware, or controlling the telescope mount with the application "SynScan Pro for Windows". It provides better performance than the "PC Direct Mode" in the SynScan hand controller. To restore the original hand controller function, users just need to re-program the hand controller with normal SynScan V4/V5 firmware.
