Possibility of issuing focus commands to canon lenses on camera bodies linked to asiair pro?

Post by a.cidadao » Sun Apr 05, 2020 6:41 pm

Canon camera body with motorized canon lens attached, USB linked to asiair pro.
Asiair pro can control exposure time, iso, binning, can enter into focus mode (live view?), but I did not find any way of remotely focusing the lens (as Helicon remote allows).

It would be a great plus, as would be the support of the Ascom Canon focuser if an AsI camera (instead of a canon body) was to be used in combination with canon lenses.

Is it possible? Is it planned?

Thanks!

I'm sorry the ASIAIR PRO can not remote focusing lens.I will convey your feedback to our devs and they will consider this.
If you want combine canon lenses with ASI camera,you need a New Canan EOS-M54X0.75 Adapter.This is design for ZWO full-frame cameras,like ASI094 and ASI128.(https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/pr ... apter-copy)
Or New EOS-T2 Adapter suitable for all ASI cameras,this adapter suitable for all ASI cameras,but supports Canon EF lens only.(https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/pr ... si-cameras)
