Lunatico Astronomia (???) (Re: Silicon Labs USB Driver is now at v5.0.3)

Dear Alan and WeatherCat early adopters,

Just in case anybody is interested in the latest. Installed today with no problems so far. Check it out here:

As a matter of principle, I always try to have a look at the release notes when they are available.  You'll find them here:



The release note for this version read:

CP210x Macintosh OSX Driver Revision History
--------------------------------------------

Version 5.0.3
   Added VID/PID for Lunatico Astronomia.


Which of course begs the question . . . . just what exactly is "Lunatico Astronomia"

A quick Google search will give you this website:

https://tienda.lunatico.es/en_GB

This appears to be a manufacturer of electronic devices to improve the operations of telescopes.  Now for you Amateur Astronomers out there this could be huge.  However, for the weather enthusiasts this could be an update that you can afford to skip.  :D

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
