ZWO ASIair 120 Guide Camera Kit
ZWO ASI 120 Mini Monochrome Camera
The ZWO ASI 120 Mini is a top notch monochrome guide camera, well suited to both planetary imaging and acting as a guider to amplify the usefulness of other astronomy instruments. Despite being qualified as a 'miniature' camera, it still operates at a high level of performance; with a peak QE over 75-percent, a typical read noise of only 4.0e, a pixel array of 1280 x 960, and a pixel size of only 3.75 micrometers, it qualifies as a powerhouse despite its small size. It achieves all of this while presenting a small and slender profile, taking up a minimum of space in your imaging train. The interface for this camera is a Type C USB 2.0 port, similar to that found in several mobile phone types.
ZWO ASI AIR
The ASIair Wi-Fi Camera Controller is a smart Wi-Fi device that allows you to control all ASI USB 3.0 cameras, ASI Mini series cameras, and an equatorial mount. With this device, you can plate solve, autoguide, sequence, and capture deep space images with your phone or tablet!
Preview & Focus In Real Time
The ASIair can preview images in real time. It will debayer images from a color camera and automatically white balance images on the fly. You can also zoom in on a small area and use the half flux width half diameter graph to perfectly focus your telescope. The ASIair will also switch between automatic and manual stretching so that you can get the most detail out of your deep space images.
Independent Autoguiding & Imaging
Autoguiding with a portable imaging setup requires you to bring along a laptop, often with multiple programs installed to both successfully capture images and autoguide. Often with multiple programs installed for image capture and autogiding. However, the ASIair is designed to handle both autoguiding and image capture at the same time so you can control everything from a single smartphone or tablet.
The ASIair app is available for both iOS and Android products. As long as you have a charge, you'll now be able to control your entire astro-imaging setup from anywhere.
|iOS||9.0 & up||iPhone 6 series/ 7 series/ 8 series/ X||iPad/ iPad Pro|
|Android||5.0 & up||All Android Phones||Tablet with Android OS.|
The ASIair App also speaks with the SkySarfari apps. You can now plate solve in the ASIair app and sync the mount's position in SkySarfari!
USB 2.0 Ports
The ASIair has four USB 2.0 Ports that allows you control up to four devices including a German Equatorial Mount.
Micro SD Card Port
The ASIair has one micro SD card port for running the operating system. A 32gb card with the OS pre-installed comes standard and has 25gb free for storing images.
5V DC Port
ASIair needs 5V@2.5A external power supply that connects via a micro USB port. Included with the ASIair is 12V-5V DC Converter which allows you connect to any 12v power supply or powertank.
The ASIair will work with all ZWO Pro, Cooled, USB 3.0 and Mini cameras. The standard USB2.0 ASI 120 cameras are not compatible with this device. We recommend that you look into the ASI 120 Mini as an alternative guider or the ASI 120 Superspeed cameras for planetary imaging.
ZWO has tested iOptron and SkyWatcher mounts for compatibly. But any equatorial mount supported by SkySafari will work as well.
