Before moving to my current mount about a year ago, I had used a Takahashi EM-11 successfully with the ASIAIR.

However, that EM-11 has a Temma interface. Unlike the Temma models, the Takahashi USD models do not have GOTO functionality, so I suspect your EM-10 may not work with the ASIAIR, or even if it does, at least not have complete functionality. Without GOTO functionality, ASIAIR is of dubious usefulness for the mount.

(At one time, Takahashi sold USD to Temma conversion kits.)
