    Hello.

    Very interested by ASIAIR, I have questions about its use with DSLRs :
    Q1 : is it possible to let images only in DSLR storage and don’t download them to the memory card of ASIAIR (only 32 Gb)?
    Q2 : if not, can we define where store downloaded images (additional USB key) ?
    Q3 : when enabling “Save Image to DSLR Simultaneously” from Main Camera Settings, is it saved in DSLR manufacturer RAW format ?

    Regards,

    If you will not sell the OS, which is an odd position considering you would sell considerably more systems.

    However, is there a timeline to utilize the Raspberry Pi4B ?

    Hi,

    I’m very interested on this kit … my setup would be as follows:

    1. ASI 1600 MM-C v1 (imaging camera)
    2. ASI 224 MC (guiding camera)
    3. ZWO 8×1.25″ filter wheel
    4. Orion Atlas EQ-G
    5. ZWO EAG

    I guess all these are compatible with the AsiAIR, BUT, I will be needing 5x USB ports. Can I use a USB hub for controlling the wheel and the focuser motor? Have you actually tried this? will I need to power up the hub? All this is very important since I want this setup to work in a nomad environment.

    Many thanks!

    Guten Tag
    Ich habe eine Asi120mc-s und den ASIair. Damit wollte ich meine EQ6-R guiden. Als Mainkamera funktioniert alles perfekt. Nur als Autoguider erhalte ich immer den Hinweis,das alle Komponenten vorher verbunden werden müssen,wenn ich das Guiding starten will. Ich habe den ASIair wie beschrieben in Betrieb genommen. Das 3.0 USB Kabel von der Kamera zum ASIair und das ST4-Autoguiderkabel von der Kamera zur Montierung. Leider ohne Erfolg. Ich habe auch ein zweites
    ST4-Autoguiderkabel probiert,weil ich dachte das es möglicherweise defekt ist. Doch auch mit dem zweiten Kabel kommt immer wieder die selbe Meldung. Würde mich freuen wenn Sie mir helfen können.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen Alexander Kuppi

    Hi, for refeerence I have , ASI290mm, ASI290MC and ASI1600mm and 7 slot filter wheel. SW Esprit 100EDapo and the AZEQgt mount.
    Still a bit of a noob with gear, been using the Sharpcap, ASI software and firecapture currently.
    I have been deciding on a main software for a while and keeping an eye on this device and software.

    My main problem, by specs, is IOS, I don’t use IOS, I have MS Desktops, laptops and a Surface pro.

    Q1.How can I interface to device through non IOS such as a MS Surfacepro?

    Q2. The device, Pi3B+, as good as they are, why can’t we load the engine into something like the Rockpi4B which has an eMMC module for OS or SD, but more importantly a M.2 NVMe slot for a SSD drive and two USB3 slots that allow the cameras to breath bandwidth which then allows for video?

      Q1: We recommend you install a Android emulator such as Bluestack to run ASIAIR in windows 10.
      Q2: We have no immediate plans to use RockPi4B, and we will optimize our system.
