Hello there!
I can see there are some issues with connecting to the Avalon mounts via usb, and also with the guide accuracy in the simplified PHD2 software in the ADSIAIR, when using Avalon mounts.
I would just love to use the ASIAIR pro with my ASI gear and the M-zero mount IF the problems with the USB driver (and the guiding accuracy) could be solved definitely.
The StarGo usb port (no RS232 ports on Avalon) is based on the FTDI chip and the ASI AIR is based on the Raspberry/Raspbian/Ubuntu OS, wich means, that the FTDI driver probably must be installed on the ASI AIR for reliable and fully functional usb connection to the Avalon StarGO mount.
It seems to be complicated to fix....
But I would order the ASIAIR if theese problems were solved...

I'm using an Avalon M Zero HQ mount with the ASIAir, using a WiFi connection. I can connect using Meade LX200, but not with either Avalon driver (i.e., Legacy or StarGO). With the Meade driver, the mount does not respond while doing NCP alignment after plate solve; it does not rotate 60º, as the software indicates. Oddly, it does respond if I use the Astro Physics legacy driver, but drives the scope into the tripod going below the horizon during RA rotation; it does not stop at 60º. I have successfully used the ASIAir for preview, autofocus (with the ZWO EAF), and AutoRun (with 10 exposures each of darks, bias, lights, and flats) using a ZWO ASI294 cooled CMOS color camera. To data, I am unable to do a polar align, and I am also doubting whether auto guiding is working, given the non-response to RA during polar align. Any idea what we can do about this? The system is otherwise ideal for astrophotography, save for one other issue: I cannot link SkySafari to StarGO except through the StarGO network; even though I can connect directly to the StarGO network and use SkySafari for Align, GoTo, etc functions, a very handy option. Is it possible to link SkySafari through the ASIAir network instead?

We are still working on this.

Any advice for which driver to use in the meantime, and whether it is possible to use SkySafari through the ASIAir network to the mount to control it from SkySafari?

Currently, no way to do that. Still working on it.

Жизнь с запущенным раком простаты может быть подавляющей. Важно понимать как болезнь, так и ваше лечение, чтобы вы могли принимать активное участие в принятии решений о вашем лечении.
Если уровень простат-специфического антигена (ПСА) постоянно повышается во время лечения, которое снижает уровень тестостерона, это может означать, что ваш рак простаты прогрессирует. Прогрессирование означает, что рак ухудшается или распространяется.

Когда это произойдет, ваше лечение может измениться. Вот почему ваш врач может назначить XTANDI - лечение, которое может помочь замедлить прогрессирование.
