katzinaz Can you connect the ASIAIR to the CGEM mount without going through the hand controller?
I have no idea. I have never owned a Celestron mount.
If you look at the last post on that other thread, I had a conjecture to try to override ASIAIR's error. I don't know for sure it would work since I don't have a real mount (my MountSim program models an ideal Celestron mount based on their documentation). I couldn't come up with a real way out, except for switching to StellarMate or INDIGO Sky -- you would need AstroImager and AstroGuider too with INDIGO Sky -- or N.I.N.A. if your are willing to use a Windows laptop. (There is also other things like AstroBerry, which I have zero experience with.) So perhaps try what I outlined in that last (#17) post.
