Incredible all in one control
Running Cem26 zwo camera and guide scope, no focus or filter wheel or dew heater. Pretty intuitive menu. Got the hang of it by the end of the night. Love this thing.
OPT comes through! The much sought after item was delivered much faster than originally quoted!!
I am still learning the workflow and nuances of the ASIAIR Plus.
I knew there was a backorder on this product and the site gave an estimate of 2-3 weeks. I recieved regular updates from OPT about the delay, and was very happy to Hear that my item had shipped well within Their estimated timeframe. I'm new to OPT, and the great service they showed me is why I'll continue to use them.
An AMAZING device, with some quirks (you can lose pics!)
OPT was awesome as usual, enough said. I love this thing. I had to use my laptop a week ago and forgot how much it sucks compared to the ASI AIR. Pros: 1. Polar alignment works great, but very touchy. 2. Plate solving is unbelievably accurate and simple. You can also recenter the frame accurately by holding on the spot you want. 3. Guiding is amazingly easy to use. 4. Live stacking is simple to use. Cuiv the Lazy Geek has a great video on it. 5. You can set up a shooting plan and go to bed. It can park the scope and shut it down. Cons: 1. The biggest headache is the iOS app if you use an iPhone. It won't work with the latest iOS build and the built-in wifi!!!! I had to use an old phone with iOS 14.xx 2. The wifi is unbelievably anemic. Purchase a better antenna (2.4ghz and SMA connector) on Amazon. It makes a huge difference. 3. If you forget the SD card and use the internal memory, COPY THEM TO THE SD CARD, DON'T MOVE THEM! Twice now I've lost a whole session because they were deleted in the move. 3. You cannot set the camera's aspect ratio lower.
Has it's Moments, but there is Nothing Else Like It.
After struggling for a few months with a homebuilt Raspberry Pi computer, I gave up and purchased an ASI AIR Plus. WOW, what a major difference. It connects to my camera and mount, guides me through polar alignment and plate solving. There is nothing else like it.
