Walking on the Moon

Some new DIY bits - Universal Controller + Dew Heater.


Recommended Posts

I have been meaning to do this for quite a while now and have finally completed it, just needs labelling up. Nothing fancy, just a box that I can clamp on to my dovetail that contains all the electronics that I need for my imaging. Mainly to eliminate cable clutter and have everything in one place. All I require is a 12V supply and a single USB cable.

Since I had most of the parts laying around or were salvaged cost was negligible.

The box itself just contains a few building blocks namely:
1x Startech 4-port USB 2.0 hub (de-housed).
1x Switch Mode Power Supply for Canon camera
2x PWM dew controllers for main scope and guide scope

4 Port Startech USB hub


Canon Power, Mount supply, Dew controllers


Guide scope dew heater (~600mW)
