General Discussion / AstroEQ with ZWO ASIAIR PRO
« on: November 02, 2020, 10:18:42 »
I am a newbie to star-guided astrophotography. Currently my AstroEQ PCB4.6 is working fine with a CG-4 EQ mount. Thinking about purchasing an ASIAIR PRO for controling the mount movement (GOTO) via AstroEQ box and, at the same time, adjusting star-position error bases on data from a guide-camera. My idea is as follow:

- connect guide-cam USB port to ASIAIR USB port box via USB cable.
- connect guide-cam ST4 port to AstroEQ ST4 port via ST4 cable.
- connect AstrEQ USB port toASIAIR USB port via USB cable.

Could anyone having experience with AstroEQ-ASIAIR PRO help pointing me to the right direction?. Thank you.

Can you share the covers for the nema17 motors?

I 3D-printed hand-controller enclosure for the V4.6 PCB from ABS plastic (see 1:57 in the clip). I use a ATTiny85 Arduino board and a five-position switch for mode and speed selection (long-push = cycle through ST-4 - 2x - GOTO mode, click LEFT - RIGHT - UP - DOWN = R.A.- - R.A.+ - DEC+ - DEC-).  There is a red-green LED indicator to indicate the mode (green = ST-4, orange = 2x, red = GOTO). See 2:05 for details.

I also 3D-printed enclosure for 0.9 NEMA-17 DEC (1:28) & R.A. (1:38) motors.

I printed motor covers and PCBV4.6 enclosure from ABS-plastic, all designed by myself. STL files will be published on Thingiverse.com
