Re: Using 5V connection cable for power

>> can you tell me if the draw on my power supply will be 12 volts and that is converted to 5v for the AIR, or if the draw will be just 5v. You will be connecting the ZWO 12V-5V adapter to the 12V outlet of your power tank. The 5V (USB Type A) output from the ZWO adapter goes to the power connector ...

Re: Using 5V connection cable for power

>> Assuming i use your 5v cable, and my power supply is USB 3.1A (max) @ 5V, can i power the ASIAIR with just the 5V cable without any issues? It depends on the length of the USB cable and the wire gauge. The typical USB cable that uses 24 gauge wires for power contributes about 25 milliohms per foo...

Re: Telescope point outside the horizon

Hi Kikihun, Pointing and Meridian flip problems are often traceable to the wrong date and time, time zone, latitude and longitude information. It is probably worth doing a careful check of those parameters in the ASIAIR Telescope Setup window, and also the same set of information in your mount, or h...

Re: Skysafari with Eqmod

Hi Sam, The notes in iOS TestFlight v1.3 Beta (6) says "now, you can connect the network when connecting ASIAIR wifi." Does this mean that this Beta of ASIAIR can now join a home WiFi network instead of acting as its own access point? If so, I did not find a GUI to the function yet. Any hints you ca...

Re: Warning! RainbowAstro RST-135 users (ASIAIR v1.3 Beta)

After using ASIAIR Beta v1.3(2) (firmware 3.16) from iOS TestFlight for a number of nights in the past week, it felt so stable that I have since downloaded the Beta to both my primary iPad and the backup iPad. I have not even once switched back to Firmware 2.61 since using the Beta. With the RST-135...

Re: Eastern Veil NGC6992 and NGC6995

Good eyes :-). As I mentioned in the original post, "Dark, no flats." This was a quick test of the Radian filter over a couple of nights at my Bortle 5/Bortle 6 home. The Borg 71FL has lots of dropoff towards the edges when using the 0.72x reducer/flattener (f/4). It is much better with the 1.08x fl...

Re: android 9 not found ASIair

Hello Tamachi san, The ASIAIR defaults to using 5 GHz WiFi. If your smart phone only has 2.4 GHz capability, you will need to first switch the ASIAIR to use 2.4 GHz instead of 5 GHz using a phone that has 5 GHz capability. There is a WiFi Icon on the top left of the ASIAIR home window. That takes yo...

Re: Connect to mount via WiFi?

Hi Peter, Ah, I understand now. Page 43 in this document has an arcane way to determine the last two hex fields of the IP address from the serial number of the controller for use in firmware downloads: https://nimax-img.de/Produktdownloads/59960_1_Anleitung-EN.pdf (Pretty much SN/256 and SN mod 256,...

Re: Connect to mount via WiFi?

Hi Peter, I think that perhaps what Lancer meant by master mode is that at present ASIAIR can only set itself up as the Access Point of a network. As such, ASIAIR will have an SSID, the familiar ASIAIR_xxxxxxxx string, unless you have changed it yourself. The hex digits following "ASIAIR" come from ...

Re: Warning! RainbowAstro RST-135 users (ASIAIR v1.3 Beta)

Polar Alignment works fabulously with v1.3 Bet , as before.

Even though the release notes on iOS TestFlight for ASIAIR v1.3(2) mentioned planetary data, I could not find a GUI to it in the Beta app itself.
