  • This package includes a high-quality monochrome guide camera well-suited for both planetary imaging and guiding as well as a reliable ZWO finder scope.

  • Control your entire astronomy setup from your phone with the ZWO ASIair App for Android and iOS.

Product Details

  • The ZWO ASI 120 Mini is a top-notch monochrome guide camera, well suited for 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%, 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.

    ASiair Quick Guide

     

    The ASIair Pro WiFi Camera Controller is a smart WiFi 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, auto-guide, sequence, and capture deep space images with your phone or tablet!

    Key Features of the ZWO ASIair Pro:

    Preview & Focus in Real-Time

    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. Also, often with multiple programs installed for image capture and autoguiding. However, the ASIair Pro is designed to handle both autoguiding and image capture at the same time so you can control everything from a single smartphone or tablet.

    ASIair App

    The ASIair app is available for both iOS and Android products. As long as you have a charge, you'll be able to control your entire astro-imaging setup from anywhere.

     OS Version  Phone Tablet/iPad
    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 SkySafari apps. You can now plate solve in the ASIair app and sync the mount's position in SkySafari!

    ASIair Pro Interface

    Four USB Ports to control up to four devices:

    USB 2.0 Ports
    The ASIair has two USB 2.0 Ports that allow you to control two devices including a German Equatorial Mount.

    USB 3.0 Ports
    The ASIair has two USB 3.0 Ports that allow you to control two more devices including a German Equatorial Mount.

    Micro SD Card Port
    The ASIair has one micro SD card port for running the operating system. A 32 GB card with the OS pre-installed comes standard and has 25 GB free for storing images.

    5V DC Port
    ASIair needs 5V@2.5A external power supply that connects via a micro USB port.

    Supported Devices

    The ASIair Pro works with all ZWO Pro, Cooled, USB 3.0 and Mini cameras. The standard USB 2.0 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 Sky-Watcher mounts for compatibly. But any equatorial mount supported by SkySafari will work as well.

A Highly Valuable Piece of Equipment!

There's a newer version out with enhanced wifi, but for my purposes that hasn't been necessary. (I am working right next to the scope, though). Of all the equipment I've bought over the last several years, I think this was the most useful for the money spent. Seriously-- it makes alignment easier, it makes taking pictures easier, really it just makes the process easier! There is a bit of a learning curve, but compared to a lot of other apps this is easy. There are also lots of instructions online and on YouTube (check out Peter Zalinka's channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHEg89yIjkE). That is a review of the new model, but he has others as well that show how to use this specific model. FWIW, I was able to use this with my Canon SL2 camera.

It's the Apple of the telescope market.

This purchase made life simple. For those of us that don't wont to spend the first hour of the night making sure everything works and getting multiple different apps to all play well together this is it! Only down side is your locked into ZWO, but since I was already this was a no brainer for me. With a wi-fi extender I am able to set up my scope polar align then go sit in the living room spend time with the family and see everything going on with my scope outside form the I pad. Photos were taken this July in 2021 was out side with asi air pro. The best part was I got to sleep and let the ASI air pro control the scope! No more staying up all night to get several hours of exposure time.

Highly Recommended

I have used the ASIair Pro since May 1st and really enjoy it. I can operate my EQ6-R Pro mount and Canon Ra using my iPad mini 2. The WiFi extender is necessary in order to image from inside my house.

Oops. :)

From a noob to other noobs.. this system will use your dslr/mirrorless camera as main camera to align polaris. Be sure that your camera is supported before buying this handy device. At this time it does not support sony cameras. I can't use mine as a result of this right now. Though I'm keeping it for future growth into the hobby.
