@Geordi, Daniel (dciobota) has the right of it on both counts: “Home” is 90 dec, and RA is always changing with the time... but you should be able to read Axis 1 and Axis 2 at (-90, 90). Also see his info regarding ASCOM and PHD2, it’s spot on.
I’ve also been working with ASIAIR (I’ll have to check for updates). I was able to get the mount working through a SynScan V3 Hand Controller and cables. I was having difficulty configuring the AZGTi WiFi for station mode, so that it would connect directly to ASIAIR. Needing a hand controller and cables is just lame, and far too messy for my tastes. ASIAIR will let you set the mount port to serial (cabled) or Ethernet/port, so it should work wirelessly... I just didn’t get that far. Unfortunately, ASIAIR does not yet support electronic focusers, although I’ve read it’s in the ToDo list... I’m looking forward to continued development of this product.
I also have StellarMate, which works great with the AZGTi, and also supports my Sesto Senso robotic focuser. KStars/Ekos looks like a very well developed set of softwares. It seems every bit as capable as the Windows based programs I am more familiar with. I havn’t taken the time to learn it yet...
However, both of those gadgets (ASIAIR & StellarMate), have taken a back burner position for me, because I need/want super quick & easy Polar Alignment, Focus assist/Autofocus, On-the-fly Flats & Darks, Guiding, Flats & Darks applied during Light exposure Stacking, and soon I hope fully unattended all night sequences. So I run Sharpcap, PHD2, and soon SGP on a Windows Pro (RDP) mini PC with touchscreen, USB3, and 8gig ram. Ockel Sirius A Pro.
