Great promise, not yet delivered
The ASI Air could be the best thing yet for simplified DSO imaging, but its buggy. I bought it because of rave reviews on the internet and videos of users using it on their Avalon mounts, like the M Zero, which I had just purchased. It promised to be a perfect solution for integrating the Avalon StarGO mount control system with SkySafari for GoTos, and the ASIAir for complete control of the mount and imaging. That has not worked out. My specific criticism is the long delay in responding to known issues, in my case the lack of support for Avalon StarGO mounts, despite having them listed as supported in the choice of supported platforms; both Avalon Legacy (which is basically Meade LX200) and Avalon StarGO are listed, but neither have full functionality if they work at all. I’ve been told repeatedly they are working on it, and even that a fix was imminent- over the past three months. Not my definition of ‘imminent’.
Integrates cameras telescope and mount
This works as expected and gets better with each update. I use it with ASIAIR USB3 camera and USB3 camera, for tracking, and iOptron CEM 40 mount and 72mm refractor. The integration with SkySafari is excellent, and the plate solving is great as it rechecks location after a move. They have added more objects to the listing of Goto’s so its easy to use it to 3 star align your mount. This time of year it’s nice to set it up, and then stay indoors to view the images.
No more laptop in the field
This self contained device is all that is needed to guide and take astrophotos with ZWo asi cameras.
Company is constantly making improvements through app updates and working on new features. The support is no doubt the best I have experienced. Apple and Microsoft should take note!
Right now only works with ZWo asi cameras but it’s worth that limitation not to have to take a laptop into the field. I only need my iPhone or iPad.
