ASIAIR v1.2 Beta 4

ZWO: just a quick feedback that both beta 3, and the most recent beta 4 on iOS TestFlight appear to work well. And one question at the end. Beta 4 (FW 2.58) did drop the camera on me once while I was in the Focus window, when I tried using a ASI290MM mini as the main camera. Re-plugging in the camer...

Re: Sync goto instead of Sync mount

When you click on "sync" after a plate solve, you are instructing the telescope mount where it is really pointed at (i.e., the true RA and Declination coordinates), not where the mount thinks the telescope is pointed at before you synced it. If you had previously performed a goto to a star or DSO ob...

Re: ASIair backup windows 10 error

Hi Randy, One more thing: if you cannot successfully back up the entire SD card into a disk image, you should at least mount the SD card and make a copy the license file from the boot partition of the SD card. You can then download a fresh disk image (there are postings from ZWO on where to find tha...

Re: ASIair backup windows 10 error

Hi Randy, Error 1117 is, I believe an indication of a "I/O device error." Perhaps the disk utility thinks the SD card itself is corrupt, or the proram thinks the card reader that you are using is faulty. You might try a different disk reader than the USB dongle that came with ASIAIR. Your computer m...

Re: RainbowAstro RST-135 works with the ASIAIR!

Very good, Jiang xian sheng!

When there is a fix, could you please submit it to iOS TestFlight? I use iPads with ASIAIR.

Thanks,

Re: HEQ5 guiding problems

Dear jovax, I don't know what algorithm ZWO uses (I am just a customer in the USA), but from the fact that they have not yet allowed anything further than 30 degrees from the pole may point to the fact that the accuracy might depend on the secant of the angle to the nearest pole. Because of that, I ...

Re: HEQ5 guiding problems

Dear jovax,

If you were really pointed close to the celestial equator, you are about 90 degrees away from both poles, irrespective of the hour angle (meridian or not)! The notification that you received from the app is correct.

ZWO's specs asks for no more than 30 degrees from a pole.

Re: HEQ5 guiding problems

Dear jovax, The Polar Alignment is available in the current 1.2 Beta (at least for iOS TestFlight). If you are not comfortable Beta testing (potentially lots of bugs), I would recommend waiting for the real v1.2 release. Or use two tablets and two SD cards, so you can still switch back to v1.1). Sel...

Re: RainbowAstro RST-135 works with the ASIAIR!

Jiang xian sheng, When your team gets a RainbowAstro mount to test, could they please also test the Home button in the Telescope Setup screen using iOS Beta v1.2? The Home button works -- the mount slews successfully to home (horizon, west azimuth). But after that, the ASIAIR also loses connection w...

Re: RainbowAstro RST-135 works with the ASIAIR!

Jiang xian sheng,

I have not found a way to include an image on this forum, so I uploaded an iPad screenshot to my web site:

Please see where the red arrow is pointing at after Vega is chosen as target object.

Best regards,
