CPC and power cord

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Has anyone any suggestions as to how to sort the power cord out on a CPC as it slews to different parts of the sky?

I find myself bending down and picking all the power supply units up and following the mount round until it stops slewing to prevent the cord getting pulled tight.

There is a "cord wrap" feature on the handset - is that the answer or is that for wedge mounted scopes?

Any tips would be great or photos etc.

Cheers,

Sam

hi sam, if you look in the classified you will see my set up for sale in 1 of the pics you will see i have made a hub which controls the dew heaters and supplys power to the mount and its all fixed to the lifting handle, so when the scope turns everything turns with it, i also mount the power tank underneath the mount. once set up i dont need to touch the cables at all
