ASIair Mount Compatibility

Post by Poli74 » Sat Oct 06, 2018 3:22 am

Is the ASIair compatible with the Celestron CPC mounts. Mine is 10 years old and I have a Celestron HD equatorial wedge for polar alignment. It has a guide port.

Regards.

guide port is always the same ST4 standard
so you can guide with one ASI camera have ST4 port

I am not sure CPC mount is supported or not, seems nobody tried it
but it is supposed to

there are too many kinds of mount on the market
so we cannot test them all
so we need customer's feedback

your country Portugal, Azores
your mobile Lenovo 10
your mount Celestron CPC800 EDGE HD
your camera ASI071MC pro
your guide camera ASI120mini
your EFW no
your test result and suggestion

I was having problem connection my celestron CPC 8" Edge to asiair , and i find the way to connect 100% the Celestron CPC mount to ASIAIR,
ASIAIR app on telescope option you need to select the celestron SLT/CPC/CGE Mount and change the BAUD RATE to 9600 instead 300. :)... and perfect..... the problem I find is the guide on the screen is upside down , if you touch to the LEFT the mount go to the RIGHT if you touch to DOWN the mount go UP :| any fix for this ??

I have a Meade LXD75 mount. I cannot get Asiair-Skysafari to connect to mount. This mount is not on the Asiair pulldown list. It is on Skysafari. Help. Can it work ?
