    More about guiding connection: if the main camera has st4 port (for example asi294 mc color) then guiding camera(for example 120MM mini) can be connected to the main camera via st4 cable and then main camera to the Asiair via USB, and that is all?no USB connection between guiding camera and Asiair? And no st4 connection between guiding camera and the mount?

      No, two cameras cannot be connected by a ST4 cable.
      If you want to connect the guide camera, main camera, mount and ASIAIR together,here is a method.
      A:1. Connect the main camera and ASIAIR by USB cable;
      2.Connect the guide camera and ASIAIR with USB cable;
      3.Connect the guide camera and the mount via ST4 cable, then you can guiding with the handcontroller of the mount.

    does it support for usb 2.0 asi cams? the port is 2.0? Because the android app is only useable with 3.0 which sucks. Every cheap third party app can support 2.0 usbs

    Hi there,
    Can I set up the ASIair with a Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 for short exposure imaging without guiding?

      :

      There is no inevitable connection between shooting and the equatorial mount. If it is not long exposure, imaging within 5 seconds is basically acceptable.

      Control the camera separatley is possible.
      You can track or untrack according to the actual needs.
      1.0.8 will be released soon, you can try that.

    I am a newbie to all of this and so my question might seem naive and have an answer obvious to other forum contributors. Nevertheless, could you recommend a simple inexpensive power source for the system? Thanks.

    The only reason for me to wait buying Asiair is the missing of polar alignment feature. As Sharpcap has: a great, wonderful, unique, gorgeous feature. When are you planning to add this feature in the firmware? Soon??? In 1 month? In the next 3 month? Thanks

    I lost linkage of SynScan after ver.1.0.7. Do you have a plan of recovery “SynScan” at ver. 1.0.8? ( not “Sky-Watcher SynScan”….just “SynScan “ My Hand Contollorer firmware ver. Is newest 4.39.05.) I ‘m using Kenko SE2 SynScan now. Also do you have a plan of Vixen Sphinx linkage same as Skysafari ?

      Yes, you can.
      Power->12V 2A(1600)->12-5V@3A(ASIAIR converter)->ASIAIR
      And there is a 5V power cable supplied within the AIR.

    1) Is it possibile to have live view using asiair?
    2) Is it possibile to connect aisar with PC via USB cabel to download the pictures?
    3) If you plan to add bigger card support in the future do I need to buy a new one or upgrading an old asiair will be possibile?

    Some answers to questions about missing features like polar aligment, drift aligment, live stacking shows that there are plans to add them. My question is if buying current model Asiair with all these limitations will alow me to update the software to use all future functions ? thx
