Re: Can't guide with the asi air

Thanks Chen. Looks like tomorrow night's going to be clear so I'll give it a go. Also, after doing some digging on the forums, I saw another user had the same problem that I'm having. I'm using the synscan hand controller for the telescope driver, he suggested the beta. I will try that as well and r...

Re: Can't guide with the asi air

I've tried the st4 cable to USB and that doesn't work with the air. The time I can make a connection is with the USB from the hand controller.

Unless you're talking about the st4 to a laptop, in that case PhD works.

Re: HEQ5 guiding problems

Thanks Redsky, I was going to try the beta, but never got around to it. I have purchased and am going to use a cable and the ASIAIR with the EQMOD driver, maybe on the weekend. It bypasses the handset and uses the ASIAIR as the goto database. You also don’t have to do a 3 star alignment. SkySafari ...

Re: Can't guide with the asi air

Working on that. I'm having a really hard time getting stars in focus with any scope and the 290mini. Guiding isn't a problem with the Orion cam and scope. I'm starting to wonder if the cam is bad Could you please check the guide scope back focus either? Not sure how to do this? I thought I was out...

Re: Can't guide with the asi air

They are currently set to default values, 2000ms etc.

I adjusted my aggression on the mount last night to %30 and I still couldn't guide.
I did get an excellent polar alignment and was able to get 60 sec subs.

But yeah that's night 18 no luck with this thing.

Can't guide with the asi air

So I've had my air for a while now. I've attempted to guide 17 different nights and I've never had success. When guiding with phd2 and my Orion guide cam, it works great. I've tried the 30mm and 50mm zwo Scopes and the 50mm Orion scope with the asi 290 mini. I've entered the correct focal lengths, I...
