Skywatcher az goto battery power

Recommended Posts

Hi all, using supplied battery pack for sct127 whilst my power tank lead is being replaced. However battery pack fell during observing tonight and leads broke. They are white and black - which do I connect to positive and negative please? I fear the wrong connection mat damage the goto mount and controller.

Can you not look inside the battery holder and see which wire is connected to the positive terminal ? - the only other way is to use a cheap test meter.  Either place it into continuity setting and test between the positive terminal and the exposed end of the wire or put batteries in and set the meter to DC volts and stick the probes across the two wires.  

My guess is that the white wire is positive and the black negative, but don't quote me !
