Feature request: ASIAir support for PegasusAstro Ultimate Powerbox

Post by anderslange » Mon Dec 24, 2018 8:49 am

Hi ZWO

I'm a big fan, already using the ASI120MM for guiding and the ASI070MC Pro for imaging.

I would like to request a new feature for the ASIAir. Support for in-App control of the PegausAstro Ultimate Powerbox would be greatly appreciated!

Merry Christmas

Hello. Are you using the mini version of the 120mm? If not, how are you connecting it to the ASIAIR? I am having issues connecting mine. The system will only connect to my imaging camera but the guide camera won’t even show up.

It should be Mini version. ASIAIR only supports the usb 2.0 mini version.

A little confused here, are you saying the ASIAir won't be be able to support the 120 MM-S for guiding? I've used PHD2 on with it on a Windows machine running USB 2.0 ports and it worked fine.

Can you please clarify your statement about ASIAir only supporting the mini version. I just tried my 120 MM S as a guide scope and it works perfectly fine. It is recognized by ASIAir, all exposure, etc. controls work, and using a mock cover with pinpoints to simulate star field, tracking with ASIAir seems to perfectly normal. Graphs work, etc.

Appreciate any additional clarification.

Ruben,

Like Anders and as I stated above, I have no issues with the 120mm S (using the USB 3 cable) with the ASIAir. What happens when you try? Are you sure you've turned Guiding on in the menu?
