Initial owners of SkyGuide can request an upgrade to SkyGuard (same level of functionality) for full frame auto-guiding AND live (real time) focusing (when used with an ONAG, technologies).

To be able to upgrade you will need to have at least on SKyGuide application installed with a permanent license registered under the name of the initial buyer. SKG licenses are not transferable.
Here is a link to SkyGuide and SkyGuard (SKG) documentation.
Download and Installation Information:
SkGuard is available on 32 and 64 bit version for Windows. If you run a Windows 32 bit OS you need to download the corresponding SKG 32 bit package, otherwise we recommend the SKG 64 bit version unless some of your ASCOM driver (if you plan to use any ASCOM driver) is only available on a 32 version. In such case you will need to install the SKG 32 version even if you run a Windows 64 bit OS. However we do recommend using the SKG 64 bits version whenever possible. 32 bits versions are limited to 1 M-pixel guider frame size with Maxim-DL and 4 M-pixel size with ASCOM.
Once your order has been placed and received you will have access to download links, select your SkyGuard version 32 or 64 bits and Maxim-DL V5 or V6, or either of them if you are not using Maxim-DL. Alternately you can access the SKG download page at any time, just fill the form (future updates are available through this page), be sure to download the installation page for SkyGard since the new key will not work for SkyGuide.
To uninstall SkyGuide and install SkyGuard instead on your machine and to request a key as well, please consult the SKG documentation.
Once we have received your request(s) we will email to you a permanent license key for SkyGuard.
You can request up to 2 keys for running SKG on two different machines (PC).
