    I just got the ASI1600MM Pro mono and the ASI290MM mono and the 8-whole EFW so it would for sure work nicely with the ASIair. Question: I just ordered a StarFi for my iOptron iEQ 45 Pro mount.

    1. Would the ASIair be an advantage over the StarFi?
    2. Can I use it with my iOptron iEQ 45 Pro mount?
    3. What would be the advantage?

    Thank you!

    Roman

    I have the ASI1600MM Pro. Can ASIAIR be powered from the USB hub on the ASI1600? If so, what cable would I need? Or do I need a separate power supply? Can the ASI290MM guide camera be powered from the USB hub on the ASI1600 also?

    • Sean Wang

      :

      I suggest to separate power supply for ASI1600MM Pro to provide cooling and power up accessories( 290mm and EFW ). That will be better.
