    Will this support other camera brands for primary imaging and guiding such as the Sony a7s and Orion StarShoot?

    Hi,

    I am using a Fujifilm X-Pro2 with the Sky Rover 60ED f/6 on a Star Adventurer mount with ZWO 32 f/4 guidescope and ASI120MM mini guide camera for guiding in RA only.
    I have two questions;
    1) Can I use my guide camera (almost same FOV as main camera) to perform plate solving, or can this only be done with main camera and guide camera attached to ASIAIR?
    2) If I can perform plate solving, can I link this to Sky Safari Pro to show me where I am pointing on my iPad, or is a GoTo mount required for this to work?

    Thank you for your response from light polluted Chongqing.

      1.You need to set the guide camera as imaging camera to perform plate solving.
      2.Since you are using Star Adventure, you could only manually input the data after plate solving to SkySafari(via ST4).

    Hello,

    can this do polar alignment?

    If no is it in your plans?

    Thanks

    5. Can I plug a USB stick into the camera (or harddrive) and have the files saved there instead of the internal memory card? I’d rather not have to remove the card to collect the images each session but have it on a stick.

    1. Will it work with GM8, NexStar, and StarAdventure mounts?
    2. How many imaging cameras can it run at one time (say a setup that has 2 imaging scopes + guider)
    3. Do you have a suggested 5V battery power-pack that can be used to power this device vs. relying on 12V? In cases where the NexStar & StarAdventurer can be powered from AA batteries so I might not need to bring the 12V battery with me.
    4. Can it power a USB Dew Heater such as this one?

      Hi
      1. Yes it can but you need to choose the guide camera as main camera, then you can use it to perform plate solving.
      2. With Star Adventure, it only supports manual inputing the data of plate solving (via ST4).

    Hi
    I use a HEQ6 mount.
    I have test some ways but I can’t get an connection.
    In the manual I have read that skysafari does not work in the EQMod.
    Is there any chance to cotroll the mount via skysafari.

      Hi Mark.
      You could connect the asiair to hand controller, use RS232 cable from mount and RS232-USB cable from ASIAIR.

      :

      on hand controller, there is another port for RS232 cable, connect the hand controller with RS232 cable(come with CEM25p), then RS232 to usb cable, then the ASIAIR. Remember to choose the mount type as CEM25p in ASIAIR APP.

    Thank you for the reply Katherine. Please excuse my mistake. All this time I did not turn on the mount (on camera). Everything is working very well. I see in another post that AsiAir does not work with USB2.0 cameras, but I’m using the ASI120mm mini and it works fine as a guide camera. I guess you mean USB2.0 cameras are not supported as the Main camera. Thanks again. Love the product.

      Hi Michael,
      Great!
      ASIAIR supports ASI USB 3.0 cameras and ASI Mini series cameras, it does not support 120MC and 120MM(USB 2.0).

    Everything connects OK, but when I open the guide camera, frame a star and then try to calibrate, I get a message from the top that says “all equipment must be connected first”. I’m pretty sure all my connections are right. I’ve replaced the cables. The connection to the guide scope is working. I get the green box. I can loop the images, but when I hit the Calibrate button, I get that message. “all equipment must be connected first”. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      It supports EM-11, Temma 2M.
      Regarding to other mounts, we do not know if AIR could support them yet.
      For more information you could join in our ZWO ASIAIR group.

    For Vixen Starbook Ten mounts (SXP in my case), the mount has one RS232 which connects to the starbook ten computer/hand controller. The star book ten also has just 1 RS232 (for connecting to the mount). There are no extra RS232s to connect something like the ASIAIR. The star book does also have an ethernet LAN port and an ST-4 auto guider port. Assuming that Starbook ten is supported (INDI says it is) how would I even physicially connect the ASIAIR to my mount?
