  1. Hello Everyone, I'm using ASIAIR pro with Nikon D3300 DLSR, everything seems fine no majors issues expect operator error at this point Only question is, why do I only see ISO 100, 200, 400, 800 available in ASIAIR pro (see screen shot)? Does the app limit the ISO because I shouldn't need more than ISO 800 or is there is glitch? Does the DSLR need to be set to a particular setting before connecting to ASIAIR pro? I've asked ZWO the question on their forum, all they said install Beta v1.5 and send log file...done the needful don't see any change in ISO selection and don't know who to transfer the log file. I wondered if anyone using ASIAIR pro and DLSR has come across something similar. ps: Nikon D3300 is one of their tested cameras with ASIAIR Pro (as listed on their website).

  3. Hi, I've just got a asiair pro and an asi294 mc -the're brilliant - Well worth the 4 month wait However ! I'm struggling with transfering files from the memory stick to my computer Through the app on my android everything works fine - but on the computer for every fits file I have an associated jpeg thumbnail file which I have to delete one at a time which is a total pain in the neck How can I stop it generating the wretched things ? Also deep sky stacker insists on turning the fits files into gray scale - I've tried every combination of Bayer pattern there is rggb grbg etc - makes no difference They're definitely colour files when I open them in asicap I can see the colours in the nebula Hope you can help Bob
  4. I've just managed to get hold of an AsiAir Pro. First impressions are just spot on. I had a little concern when it arrived as I wasn't sure if it would handle a USB hub. Much to my surprise it did! I connected the following to make sure ZWO178mm Main Camera at present ZWO120mm Mini Guide Scope ZWO EAF ZWO EFW Mini Filter Wheel SkyWatcher EQ 35 Pro via USD with Direct PC Connect option using the EQMount INDI driver Powered EQ Mount, EAR via AsiAir Pro All connected successfully. Will keep updating as I start to use
  5. Restoring a Backup on a Mac Something else I came across and a chap called Terry on Facebook had a solution. Again, you might already know this, but just in case. Backup You buy a new ASIAIR Pro, you are pretty much advised that one of the first things you should do, is to create a backup of your software(includes your license key) from the supplied SD card. And one of the common methods suggested for Mac users is to use the “Apple Pi Baker” program/application. So, I used the application to create my backup and saved it in a safe place, in fact I made two copies(belt and braces). Then, yesterday, I thought I should really try to restore one of these backups to make sure they actually work, else what is the point of having a backup for that rainy day. And actually, I will keep the original safe and use my copy going forward. Restore So, I inserted a new blank SD card(Fat32) and started the restore process, letting it run its course. Once it had finished, I did a quick eye ball to compare the copy to the original and all the files appeared to be there. I then plugged the restored SD card back into the ASIAIR Pro, but the device would not start/boot up! Just in case, I then reformatted another SD card and tried that one, but still no good. I then created another backup from the original SD card(so all in all I had img and zip versions) and tried to restore them, the same result, fail. On further investigation, it looks like this is fairly common. Terry on ASIAIR Facebook group suggested downloading the file from the ZWO website, but then using your own License file. I then used the ASIAIR PRO link above(from the “How_to_Restore_ASIAIR_OS.pdf” on line doc) to get the file. First, keeping a copy of my zwoair_license safe of course(still on the original SD card). The file is pretty large, unzips to about 31 GB and takes a while to download(9GB zipped) even on cable. I then restored(using Apple Pi Baker) this new downloaded file to my new SD card and once it had completed, I then overwrote(replaced) the existing “zwoair_license” file with my original(my unique supplied copy). Next, I then inserted the new copied/restored SD card into the ASIAIR Pro and it started. Finally, I then connected via the ASIAIR app using my IPhone and was prompted to update the firmware to the latest version which I did. Happy Ending Bingo all good, the original SD card supplied by ZWO stored in a safe place and I am now using this copy going forward.
  6. I am considering getting an ASIair Pro. At home I use a 13.6V fixed linear power supply with my kit. Has anyone used the ASIair Pro with a 13.6V input. The manufacturers data only lists 12V and a minimum voltage, no maximum being stated. I don't want to buy it and blow it.
  7. Looking to picking up an android tablet to use with the unit in the title. I read where the ASIair pro comes with 5g wifi will that be compatible with the 802.11 (2.4 ?) wifi in the tablet I'm looking at? I obviously know little about android os but know I can't afford an ipad and the ASIair pro without having a lot to explain to "she who must be obeyed".
