Star Gazer Posted February 25 Share Posted February 25 I am aware that these two boxes are not exactly thing, but in terms of cable/power managment they do have some similarities. Obviously the ASIAir does a lot more than the PPBADV, but only if you have a DSLR or a ZWO camera. Anyway at the moment I am very happy performing image acquisition using NINA and a MeLe PC mounted on the scope. I control the PC using VNC on a iPad, however my cables are a nightmare and something needs to be done. I've looked at many options, including DC Hub 2, and the WondererBox plus, but none of them are obviously appealing for one reason or another. Am I missing something here but I think I am going to go with the ASIAir Plus, even though I will not be using it for 90% of its functionality. In short I will use it mainly for its power distribution functions. In some ways the PPBADV looks like the obvious choice, but it is quite expensive compared with the ASIAir, and since I have an ZWO camera, but not a ZWO guide camera, I would have an upgrade path if I fall out with NINA. So my idea is to power the mount, camera, dew heater and PC from the ASIAir, and then use it as a USB hub for the data for the main and guide cameras as well as connection to the focuser. Do you think this is a ridiculous idea? Have I overlooked something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
