    Looks like there is a firmware Firmware.jpg update for my 16803 (see attached) but the "directions" say to check here first before going ahead with it. I am not having any major issues with the camera except there have been a couple of times in the last month where imaging sessions have been spontaneously aborted during the middle of an integration. I suspect there is some camera communication issue although no definitive timeout error is reported. So perhaps this is an update I should execute?
    Thanks

    You should upgrade. Here's a list of the changes since 2.50.

    2.51 - fix occasional shutter control lockup issue
    2.52 - STX shutter reliability improvements
    2.53 - added detection of bad temperature readout
