Battery/mains power lead for Skywatcher Synscan tripod

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

    Can anyone help to point me in the right direction on how to go about setting up a 12V battery for use with the Synscan? I was thinking on using a 12V sealed lead battery and would also like a separate mains power lead with a plug. Any other "simple" suggestions are welcome, as long as they are safe, reliable (tried and tested with the Synscan) and effective to use with the Synscan. An explanation and/or photographs would be very helpful.

 

Regards and thanks,

 

Mark

I have a SynScan alt-az and I power it with a jump starter from Halfords. With mine there was a lead supplied that fitted the mount perfectly, including the correct polarity for the lead
