      It supports Canon 500D.
      DSLR can be set as main camera and you need a guide camera for guiding.

    What chip sets for the USB to serial cable does the ASIAIR support. I know the one that comes with it uses a Prolific chip set and driver.
    Love my ASIAIR.
    Need the ability to view “BEST OF TONIGHT” without being connected to the scope or mount. Can plan out your night before setting up. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

    Dear Friends,
    Would you be able to post the latest version of the android app for ASIAIR at the google play store.
    My ChromeBook (for technical reasons) can only access the app through the play store, but it is an older version.
    Love,

    Hello, i know there is a list of mounts supported through INDI, but the link is not very clear to me. Could you tell me if the ASIair is compatible with a skywatcher staradventurer ? the staradventurer has a ST4 port but can be guided on one axis only . Thank you for taking time to tell me if it’s ok or not with this mount.

    I just purchased ASIair. I have also have Celestron Starsense but an old Starsense hand controller that doesn’t have mini usb at the bottom of the hand controller but a phone cable RJ11. Will this still be compatible with ASIair or will I need to update the Starsense hand controller?

    Hi,

    my Android device does support only 2.4GHz. The manual states that only 5G-WiFi will be supported. In the description above is claimed that both, 2.4 and 5GHz are supported. What is true now?

    Thanks & kind regards

    Hi there,

    I have ASI071MCpro, ASI120mini as a guider cam, ZWO-EAF as a focuser. The EAF disrupts data traffic in USB when I try using the EAF. It crashes every time, on 3 different PCs using APT, independently. On 32bit and 64bit systems. (I could identify the EAF as the source of trouble, consistently and repeatable, currently went back to manual focusing)

    Will ASIair solve this? Is ASIair capable of running these 3 components smoothly, reliable and hasslefree together?

    Thank you

    Is it possible to use Asiair only as a wifi module? I would like to use it sometimes only for visual purposes, without connecting any cameras. Can I then (without cameras, without any preview image,focusing etc.) use Asiair to switch to Sky Safari and thus control the equitorial mount remotely, do aligment in Sky Safari?

      Yes it is possible.
      ASIAIR support polar alignment and you can use it without SkySafari.

    Sorry for the newbie question. I am living at a location where the North Star (Polaris) is almost at the horizon. Thus, it is impossible to perform polar alignment here. May I know are there any other option for alignment on the ASIair without using Polaris?

    Walter – July 28, 2018: Is this a lynx operating system?

    Sean Wang – July 30, 2018: – No, it’s our own system.

    Walter, it’s a linux system running on the raspberry pi hardware platform. Look in the configuration files area on the SD card.
