USB3 ASIAIR in 2020?

Can anyone confirm that a new ASIAIR will be released in early 2020 that will have a more powerful processor and USB3.0. I have heard this from a friend today.

Will the Current ASIAIR owners have the ability to upgrade from the older model if this is the case?

Regards,

Can the main camera be switched to the guide camera temporarily, use the focus tool to get good focus, and then switch back to the guidecamera? would this method work to fo...

GPS and Time Settings

Can GPS and time be entered manually? if my ipad isn't hooked up to cellular, can the GPS and time sync be done using my phone, and once that's done, switch back to the ipad? will the app retain the GPS and time settings?

Thanks for your help,

Regards,

Re: Shorter Subs? Lucky Imaging - 183MC vs 294MC

Yes, That's a good question. that's exactly the reason I'm looking at the 294... lucky imaging. I tested a 183mc pro and didn't find the subs to be any shorter than with my 174mc. I'm hoping the 294 will do better. from all that I've read, it's a much more sensitive camera. if you go to cloudy night...

Between the 183MC and the 294MC which of these will be better for lucky imaging? can I do lucky imaging at all? For example, camera A might need 3 min to get a decent subexposure, while another ...

Shorter Subs? 183MC vs 294MC

Hello All :) I have a 174MC camera and looking to upgrade to the 183MC or the 294MC. I'm only interested in COLOR cameras for now. I have 2 questions: 1.) Will either of these two cameras be a significant upgrade to the 174MC. 2.) If so, which of these 2 cameras will provide the shortest subexposure...
