Thanks for confirming Jerry, appreciated.

Then I think this is the June 8/2020 eeprom Wade is referring to, correct?

2020-JUNE-08 FIRMWARE RELEASE
iEXOS 100 PMC-Eight Mount Files:
1A01C_10B_5.eeprom
Description:
1) Updated Stepper Motor micro-step parameters to correct pointing
error when slewing between 1 and 3 degrees. Thanks Bill Black for
discovering this error and to Wes McDonald for tirelessly working
with me to nail down the root cause of this behaviour.
2) Updated motor current settings to raise the motor current when
slewing as compared to when tracking - 


Regards,

Mario

When updating firmware, do you need to apply all previous iExos firmware updates or can you just apply the June 8/2020 update and be all caught up?
Hi Mario,

You do not need to apply any previous firmware, these are not incremental updates. All you have to do is load the latest firmware.
