Connecting Ioptron Gem45

Post by astrosatch » Tue Jul 28, 2020 10:43 am

Hi!
I just ordered ioptron gem45 and would like to know if it can be connected directly to asiair or you have to connect it through hand controler.

Clear skies,
Andrej

Hey Andrej, you can buy it without doubts, many users are using GEM45 now with v1.4.4.

Thanks. I guess daylight savings problem is solved too?
Do I have to make 3 star align or I can use it as eqmod for skywatchers?

I’ve been using it with my CEM40 with no problems. If you are using the go-to feature within the ASIAir interface there shouldn’t be a need to do a 3 star alignment. At least that’s my experience.

Hey Andrej, iOptron mounts can not use EQMOD way. Only thru the HC or new ones thru the USB port on the mount body.
