Has anybody experience in using these cameras in connection with Polaris?

I did a short test with the Sony A7C, Polaris is connecting and can control the small Sony fullframe system.
Same with Sony A1, wich is not on the supported cameras list.

As the weather is poor, I had no chance to do some Astro testing, but I'll give feedback, as soon as the system was 'in action' ...

Thank you for your fast response. I hope the weather will improve and you can do some tests in astrophotographers!
Kind regards,
Hans

I did connect it, and it works with my A7r3.
But not yet had the pleasure to try astro, given weather and location.
Maybe in some days I'll try for the moon, with a 600mm (Sigma) and the recent (yesterday) firmware update.
Main equipment:
Benro Polaris Astro version (wifi).
Sony A7rIII. Main used lenses for astro: Sony FE 16-35/2.8 GM, Sigma 150-600 DG DN Sport
Tripod: Peak Design travel carbon.

I bought Polaris recently and am quite content with the manual and the instrument. My Sony 6400 and A7C are working, although the enclosed USB C cable for the A7C did not work for some reasons I do not understand. Therefore I used a Sony C cable. Then it worked. Further testing ahead….

It works very well with the original cable on my A7c, and I have yet to test it on my a6500. I am going on a Milky Way weekend and I will report any issues afterwards.
