ZWO OAG/AsiAir disaster

Hi, I setup the zwo oag with 2600mc-pro and 290mm guide camera. Using the zwo helical focuser, achieving common focus was relatively easy. Note this is installed on a Celestron C8 w/ 2032mm FL. Last night was its first test. I first focused the 2600mc-p on Arcturus via diffraction mask. Then nudging...

Re: Canon still does not work (?)

I ‘guess’ I found the problem. I noticed that even with wifi and bluetooth off, the hotspot selection on an iPad was still be toggle green. When I shut that off, then put my iPad in airplane mode, and enbable wifi for the AsiAir’s 5G - everything worked. No problem at all with the Canon. Now I tried...

Re: How to roll-back AsiAir version?

My backup disk loaded but the network would not start. I recreated the boot disc from scratch. Worked like a charm.

Moral to the story: Test backup images and in all things be patient.

I see the difference clearly when guiding...... but that’s just my experince. My Asiair will guide w the color, but monochrome was better. I should ad...
