The old days of astrophotography cable clutter, endless guiding and laptop computer data transmission issues that can waste an entire observing session if not done accurately are now a thing of the past with the ZWO ASIAIR Plus! As an "all in one" solution for astrophotographers doing both basic and long exposure astroimaging, it removes a lot of the hassle previously needed into an easy imaging setup! Virtually every component needed to execute exposures can be controlled via the ASIAIR Plus!

Features

  • An all in one solution to astrophotography, removing much of the extra hassle and simplifying the process!
  • Accomplishes plate solving by matching a set of the sky against a database, thus making polar alignment significantly easier especially in the southern hemisphere with lack of a pole star.
  • Compatible with a very wide range of cameras and mounts on the market.
  • With a built in WiFi antenna, the ASIAIR Plus has improved signal compared to its predecessor ASIAIR Pro. This lowers the risk of Wifi interruption which could negatively impact exposures or cause data loss altogether.
  • Equipped with dual band WiFi channels of 2.4Ghz/5Ghz with a tested 20 meter range at 2.4Ghz!
  • Multiple ports available including Ethernet, both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, DSLR shutter release and DC 12V.
  • Can support external TF cards and USB drives for increased storage.
  • Includes a USB-C port for exporting files to an external computer.
  • Includes status lights for power, WIFI, and system I/O for verification they're operational.

Better WIFI Signal than ASIAIR Pro, yet lighter and thinner!

Wireless speed is one of the most crucial factors in having a flawless imaging session without chance of data interference and possible subsequent frame dropping. Compared to the ASIAIR Pro, the ASIAIR Plus has an included WIFI Antenna that generates improved WIFI signal that can accomodate a dual band of both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz with a range of 20 meters at 2.4Ghz. It is highly recommended that the connected USB 3.0 cable stay away from the antenna to reduce chance of interference of the frequency.

The PLUS is 24% thinner than the Pro with dimensions of only 100x70x26.5mm.

Installed with eMMC Storage for Improved Memory Performance

Apart from wireless signal, efficient memory storage is also critical for a smooth imaging session because it determines how fast the portable device, in this case the ASIAIR Plus can read and write the data. The faster and more efficient these speeds are, the quicker data can be written, backed up, and accessed. After over 300 rigorous and diligent tests conducted by ZWO, the average read speed is 121 mb/s and write speed is 95 mb/s. The total storage capacity is 30Gb with an initial free space of 20GB.

2.5x Faster I/O Speeds Compared to ASIAIR Pro

The ASIAIR Plus has 2.5x faster I/O speed than the Pro, meaning it has quicker data transmission to external devices.

Multiple Ports to Connect Multiple Peripheral Devices

The ZWO ASIAIR Plus includes a following ports

  • Gigabit ethernet port to connect the ASIAIR Plus to a home network.
  • Two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports to connect compatible guiding cameras respecitively, a mount (usually via the hand controller) as well as any other focusing device such as the ZWO EAF.
  • DSLR Shutter release port if connecting a DSLR camera.
