Customer Reviews

  LS 1.6E  These cards now contain the 1.6E software, which fixes the April 2019 GPS issue. The card arrived the next working day and therefore great service by Harrison Telescopes. Fixed my bricked LS so I am happy around and will be using them again. John  (11/10/2019) John - Epsom


  It worked!!  I ordered this for my non functional (bricked) Meade LS6 telescope. It arrived quickly and I followed the simple instructions and 20mins later I had a fully functional telescope. Thankyou   (16/08/2019) Paul McGowan - Northern Ireland


    I could not be more pleased with the firmware card I recently purchased. It arrived the following day, and following the instructions supplied worked straight away. My Meade LS is now up and running. I cannot thank you enough.   (04/03/2019) Mr T W Betts - North Wales


    I could not be more pleased with this product. My Meade LS picked up a firmware issue which rendered it useless. Having ordered the card it was delivered next day. Pleasingly, it was supplied with comprehensive instructions and it resolved my issue at the first attempt. My scope now works flawlessly   (18/08/2018) Jon - Planet Earth.


  Meade Les firmware card  Massive thank you for my firmware card, Im a newbie to astronomy and got handed down my Meade telescope, so Im very exited to get started. Now I have installed the software hey presto nothing could be more easy. Thank you for the fast service and delivery of my purchase,   (04/08/2018) Danny - Hampshire


  Meade LS 2GB SD Firmware Card   I was updated a few minutes after I placed the order and SD card arrived next day. Im very pleased with their quick service. Didnt have any problem with the SD card, I was able to get the updates quickly and my telescope started working again. When it arrived, the package was not sealed. Luckily, I found the SD card inside, even though it could have been lost in the post. Hope whoever handles this next time takes this into account. Many Thanks.   (08/07/2018) Jay - Southend on Sea
Our Reply: Thank you for the feedback, we will of course look into why the envelope was unsealed and take action to prevent that in future


  Work right first time. Very easy.  The upgrade worked right first time without a problem and was very easy to do. The instructions were clear and simple. This has resolved a firmware error with my scope. Thanks very much Harrison Telescopes.   (17/04/2018) Kenny - Reading


  Reassured that if it didn't work I could return it  In addition to my review of the card itself, I want to praise Harrison Telescopes for their user friendliness. I called before ordering and was assured that if the firmware reflash didn't work, I could return the card for a refund. Fortunately, this didn't apply.   (09/04/2018) Owen Gwynn - Mid Cheshire Astro Group


  This simply works. Well worth the cost  I'd managed to flash the firmware just once with my 'own' Mini SD cards, but for reasons unknown I'd not been able to repeat the event - I have a feeling that Win 10 doesn't do a 'proper' FAT32 format. So my 2K scope was useless. Fortunately the SD 20 card from Harrison did the job. All's well now   (09/04/2018) Owen Gwynne - Mid Cheshire Astro Group
