Support for astromechanics lens adapter

I ordered a Astromechanics lens adapter for my canon lenses. This adapter has an electronic connection with the lens through software, which allows it to control aperture and autofocus. Awesome, but it would be even more awesome if the asiair would be able to control it. Now I need a computer. As I ...

Re: ASIAIR erratic telescope control

Hi Chen, I did try this tonight, indoors and everything seemed to work as it should now. Only thing I did different from before, is that I did not align the mount with the handcontroller this time but straight from SkySafari through ASIAIR. That seemed to do the trick for some reason. Also a GoTo di...

Re: ASIAIR erratic telescope control

Hi Chen, Thanks again for thinking with me about this. you can indeed set a delay or ask for early meridian flips, but it is all set to 0. Later today I will again try different things to see if I can figure this out. I am pretty sure that it is something that I do. I realized that the mount is fine...

Re: ASIAIR erratic telescope control

Hi Chen,

Not the case I am afraid. 52 degrees north! I'll try it with just ASI Air, but I do not know if that works.

cheers,

Peter

Re: ASIAIR erratic telescope control

Hello Chen, I did just that this evening. And with mixed results. I checked the time in the handcontroller Asiair and Skysafari. All the same as well as the location. In the handcontroller I can select a timezone with or without dst. All good as well. When I control the mount with the hand controlle...

ASIAIR erratic telescope control

Hi all, Last night I connected my ASIAIR to my AP Mach 1 mount via usb. The mount connected without an issue and I used the polar alignment routine without any problems. I then went to align it and finetuned it with a platesolve. No problem so far. However when I tried slewing to an object on the sa...

AZ-GTI ASIAIR and SkySafari using an Ipad

Hi all, I got this little mount for travel and some widefield photography. With my Android phone I successfully connect to the mount via the ASIAIR and I am also able to use SkySafari to point the mount at the same time. So far no problem. However, trying to do the same with an IPad is difficult. I ...

Re: Connect to mount via WiFi?

By the way, I do know the IP address of the controller, but when it is in station mode, I assume it is assigned a IP address by the ASIAIR and that is what I need to know to connect to it. At least that is how I understand it. I have tried to use the controllers own IP address with the port 23, but ...
