Is this cable compatible with the ASI Air Plus, I have seen some concerns about chip compatability.
Yes this cable is 100% compatible with the ASIAIR Plus (and Pro). It can resolve issues with some mounts that have updated their chips or firmware and have resulting compatibility issues when connecting directly with the ASIAIRs.
