ASIair Wifi Camera Controller Features

    • Standalone Guiding: The stand-alone guiding offered by the ASIair is ideal for DSLR users.

  • Standalone Imaging: No laptop required! All you need is your camera mounted on a GoTo equatorial mount, an ASIair and WiFi connection, and the ASIair App loaded on your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. Then you are able to preview images with near real-time accuracy to check focus and framing, take the shot, make adjustments to the resulting images with auto white balance, debayering, and histogram stretching, and store them on the included 32GB SD card!

  • Plate Solving: Plate solving can be achieved in just a few seconds offline.

  • SkySafari Bridge: With SkySafari installed, the ASIair controls your camera as well as your SkySafari compatible mount. Now you can do it all through your smartphone or tablet with the ASIair!

  • SD Card & Reader: A 32GB SD Card is included. The ASIair operating system runs on this card and takes up roughly 7GB, leaving approximately 25GB of space to store your images until they are uploaded to a laptop or desktop computer for processing. Because the SD card has the OS for the ASIAIR on it, it is advisable to back it up before storing images as an extra precaution. Please note that the ASIAir will not accept SD card larger than 32GB.

Please Note : You will need 5Ghz WiFi for initial setup. It is after the initial setup that 2.4G is available. You cannot set up the ASIair with devices limited to 2.4G.

Supported Smartphones, Cameras & Mounts

Smartphones & Tablets: For Apple, iOS version 9.0 and up is supported. This includes iPhone 6, 7, 8, or X or an iPad or iPad Pro. All Android phones are supported as are tablets with Android OS 5.0 or later.

Cameras: All ZWO ASI USB 3.0 cameras are supported as well as all cooled ASI cameras and ASI Mini 's. The 120MM and 120MC are not supported.

Mounts: Most any computerized GoTo equatorial mount will work with the ASIair. If you plan to use SkySafari to control your mount with the ASIair then you will need to make sure your mount is compatible with SkySafari.

ZWO ASI120MM Mini Monochrome Imaging Camera

ZWO's ASI120MM Mini Camera features a 1/3" AR0130CS monochrome sensor with 3.75 µm square pixels in a 1280 x 960 pixel array. It enables 12-Bit ADC with a peak QE of approximately 75%.

Astrophotography Performance

With high dynamic range, AR protective window, low read noise, 75% peak QE, and much more, the ZWO ASI120 Monochrome Mini provides exemplary planetary imaging and guiding capabilities.

ASI120 Mini vs. ASI120MM-S

When compared to the larger ASI120MM-S camera, the ASI120MM Mini is lighter, more compact, and is even able to achieve focus at the same position as the eyepiece.

USB 2.0 and ST4 Ports

ZWO Mini cameras feature one USB2.0 type C port. Type C ports are ideal for smartphones as the positive and negative sides of the adapter are not important. The ST4 port connects the ASI120 Mini directly to the mount's autoguiding port.
