The Untidiest Cables competition

Recommended Posts

carastro    2,153

Well there have been some great threads on here, loving the one regarding the neatest/untidiest workstation.  

Many people are really OCD about tidying up their cables for imaging.  I on the other hand couldn't give a stuff as I am always derigging for astro camps and changing kit around I'd be forever unravelling cable ties.  So I just let it all hang out, but just make sure nothing is snagging. 

I wonder who could beat me.  

This is not the best shot as I didn't take one specially for this thread.  But this is what I get with a dual rig.  Cables just tied back initially.

That looks alot like my rig once all set up. Wires dangling everywhere. I don't mind but I do keep an eye on them when slewing etc to make sure they don't snag.

Here's an old image of my rig, ive added more cables for dew heaters etc.

When will the winner be announced?

Maybe we can have a vote after a week, I'll try to remember to start a poll and will post the link to it on here.  

So let's say closing date is midnight on 21st, or should we give it a bit longer?

This thread is giving me OCD overload - please make it stop! 😉😂

I don't suppose that even if by adding these pics together I'd stand any chance of becoming a member of the untidy league?!

I don't know about this being the winner. I can see at least 5 velcro cables ties in that picture :icon_biggrin:

I thought I had a lot of cables, but wow! You have a fork mount though - a big scope on a German mount makes for much more entertainment with cable wraps.... :grin:
