Re: asiair power supply

Jay, What are you using to connect the USB Type A from the ZWO DC-DC converter to the micro USB power connector on the ASIAIR? Make sure the microUSB end is completely seated into the Raspberry Pi power jack. You could also try a *short* USB to microUSB cable that are sold for charging phones and ta...

Re: Feature Request: Polar Alignment

From my experiments with the ASIAIR, you do not actually have to see Polaris itself to be able to use the Polar Alignment feature of ASIAIR. The RA axis will eventually need to be aligned to the north celestial pole, but the OTA itself does not have to (i.e., using a DEC that is not 90 degrees). You...

Re: Connection to Ipad

I have been able to select a different app on my iPad, and even quit the ASIAIR app altogether, select a different WiFi network, and come back to the ASIAIR later. Guiding and Autorun continued to work without the iPad connected. In fact, I have been able to connect two tablets simultaneously to the...

Re: ASIAIR Facebook user group

I do not have a Facebook account, either. However, anyone can peruse the ASIAIR Facebook web page from a desktop browser like Safari, and if you are using Safari on an iPad, you can ask Safari to use the desktop site instead of the mobile site. If not signed in, the mobile site only gives you the to...

Re: asiair connect to skywatcher AZGTi

Hi Jay, That "ASIAIR_Dev_Fei" is just an example of the WiFi SSID that they were using when ZWO created the document. (Perhaps a developer at ZWO whose name is Fei.) The SSID that you see (ASIAIR_2692ddb9) is the correct one to use. If you look at the side of the ASIAIR Raspberry Pi enclosure, you s...

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...
