How to attach the ZWO ASIAIR Plus to your telescope

How to attach the ZWO ASIAIR Plus to your telescope:

To attach the ZWO ASIAIR Plus to a telescope or mount, use the provided finder shoe style mount which can be installed either on the bottom or side of the ASIAIR Plus. Once installed, this can be slotted into the finder shoe port on your telescope. Additionally, for securing it to a dovetail bar or plate, you may use longer 1/4"-20 screws, which are available separately. Another option is to use Velcro or hook and loop material for attachment to the dovetail plate or mount head.

Running the ASIAIR App on Mac and PC:

  • For Mac users with M1 and M2 chips, the ASIAIR app is available directly from the App Store and can be run natively on these devices. However, it's important to note that the app is not officially verified for MacOS yet.
  • Owners of older Macs with Intel processors can operate the ASIAIR app using an Android emulator like Bluestacks. Keep in mind, this setup is not officially supported and may encounter performance issues.
  • On PCs, running the ASIAIR app also requires an Android emulator such as Bluestacks. This method is not officially supported, and functionality is not guaranteed, as it may not operate optimally within the emulator.
