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 isn’t able to connect this way yet but I have heard there is an update coming.
Check out AstroDad on YouTube, he gives some good info on his wows and finally success using an ASIAIR and HEQ5.
Good luck.. I may come to you for some help after next weekend 😀

You guys might have just saved my life. I'm having the same exact issues you've been describing. If this is the answer I'll be 🤯.

I will report back. Thx for giving me something new to try
