Hi all,

 

Is there any equivalent of ASAIR Pro for the QHY cameras ? Thanks in advance.

PrimaLuce Eagle 4 LE.  It's a bit more expensive but it's a mini-PC so you can use most any application you want without being locked into an ecosystem.  It's not as cheap or light weight as a Raspberry Pi but it also (for me) has significantly better WiFi signal than the ASIAir Pro. 

 

edit: I should add that I can connect to the Eagle 4 LE using my Mac, Windows, or iOS devices without issue.

QHY previously had their Astrobar product which was well made but computationally puny - and apparently still available. They now have a "Starmaster" box which looks more conventional. I see it on Aliexpress but know nothing about it. As others mentioned, a NUC like mini computer and something like a Pegasus power box would be a much better and more flexible solution.
