ZWO ASiair Mini

Geoffrey Lenox-Smith writing for Astronomy Now Magazine.

"The ASIair Mini offers 90 per cent of the features of the ASIair Plus for two-thirds of the price. It is a little slower in operation but nothing serious. Unless you have a specific need for a feature found only in the Plus (for example, an ethernet port), most users will be perfectly happy with the Mini."

My 3rd ASIair
15 April 2024  | 

I saw the Mini and it fitted with a trip I am planning to New Zealand later in ther year. I want to keep the weight down on everything I carry. Plus I saw that the mini has better wifi performance. I have the Asisair Plus in my obsy too.

The wi-fi connectivity on this is much better than the Plus...no dropouts at all. Yes you lose the network plug, but I dont use that anyway.

One criticism on the Mini and other formats of the Asiair is that I like to do solar imaging too and the minimum exposure level are still too high, 0.001 sec. They really should offer bet exposure control.

Great little astro controller
24 February 2024  | 

I previously tried to run my setup off an Astroberry setup on Raspberry Pi 4, but gave up due to constant software glitches, hangs and general instability. In contrast the Air Mini just works. After watching one tutorial, I was able to go out, get polar aligned, set guiding, goto and plate solve almost immediately. In addition, the unit uses very little power, a consideration for my relatively small battery pack. As a programmer, I appreciate the polish and effort clearly put into the IOS app.

Small but Mighty
02 February 2024  | 

Have had a secondhand ASI Air Pro on my 600mm Newtonian for a couple of years but also have a small refractor for wide field targets. Been swapping the AirPro between the two scopes but was concerned that the repeated removal of the leads would wear out the ports which can be a problem on these devices. Decided to buy the Mini after reading reviews from other customers & have to say Iím impressed by the performance of this tiny box. Wi-Fi range with the external aerial is good enough for me to image from inside my home with the rig 25ft away in my garden through a conservatory & is on par with my AirPro with a powered Wi-Fi repeater. Despite the camera being connected via usb 2 the preview images on my iPad pro appear within about 8 seconds from capture which is on par with my AirPro. The lack of control of the dc ports & the absence of an on/off switch isnít an issue at all & transferring images from the emmc either to a computer by usbc or to a memory stick is simple enough. At £100 saving over the Plus this is an ideal solution for my second rig. As ever the service from FLO was top notch with great communication & efficient delivery.

Amazing Box of Tricks
17 December 2023  | 

What an impressive piece of kit! I wanted something that would take the pain out of having to babysit my telescope outside in cold weather. This is the answer! Although I've still to operate everything in reality outdoors, the indoor test runs (hence 4 star rating for the moment) have shown the extent of this little red box's capability when paired with my AM3. I'm just blown away with the performance and can't wait to subject it to 'first light' for real. Whilst lacking some elements of the ASIAir Plus, the signs are that I will still manage to achieve my immediate astrophotography needs. It's mated really well to the top carry handle of my StellaMira 90mm ED 'scope via the ZWO ASiair Pro Dovetail Clamp suggested by Chris at FLO. Positioning it there has also allowed me to route trailing connection leads via a pair of 3D printed cable tidies that slide over the unit. Shipped and carefully packed as usual by the FLO team! Thank you.

ASIAir MINI
29 November 2023  | 

I Bought this to control my Canon DSLR when used with my Samyang 135 f2 lens. The service from FLO was to their usual high standard. I downloaded the ZWO app on my mobile, tablet and Laptop without any trouble and connected the mount ( SW Star Adventurer GTi), DSLR and ASI 120 M guide camera (I do not have an EAF for this set up at the moment) A first light test was undertaken and I was amazed how trouble free the operation was, with no connectivity problems between any of the devices used. Likewise the goto, plate solving and guiding functions all worked flawlessly. I also found as a first time user the ZWO software installed very easy to navigate. The only downside for me is it only supports ZWO dedicated Astronomy Cameras which means I can't use it to control my Altair Astro cameras. I'm very impressed with this little unit, for the price it really is a bargain buy.

Great tool
15 November 2023  | 

I've been using this for almost a year. As we know the ASIair is so simple and beginner friendly to use. Never felt as though it's lacking from the larger versions. If you're running a more bare bones astrophotography set up with just a main scope and a guide scope with a couple of dew heaters, this is all you need

Really impressive
27 March 2023  | 

Got this on a whim and wow am I impressed

The unit itself is absolutely tiny and weighs almost nothing. After a couple of beeps it just works - there is a little guide to show you how to do various things (planning/etc) and when I plugged in my wife's DSLR it again "just worked" and even told me what settings I needed to use. I've had a play and the wifi range is good enough to reach inside even with my scope at the bottom of the garden

If there's a criticism it's that there basically is no manual, while very easy to use I am still going to watch some youtube vids to make sure I've not missed anything. Also mostly likely not an issue but you will need to provide your own power supply and usb memory stick (maybe there's a better way here, again no instructions)

Fingers crossed it'll be a cloudless night tonight and I'm excited to try it out for real!

Great bit of equipment and lightweight
27 January 2023  | 

First time using the ASIair. I brought the mini after waiting for the ASIair Pro to become available. Although different to what I originally wanted, I am not disappointed.

As always, great services from the FLO team.
