AstroLearnerWill Posted February 28 Share Posted February 28 As a relative newbie, my approach to the hobby has been to: 1) take some images 2) realise where an improvement can be made (there are always improvements or something new to do) 3) make the changes / spend money / optimise 4) rinse and repeat I went through such a journey this week and learned why you shouldn't have six cables all sporadically sprawled across an active mount & telescope (HEQ5 + SW 80EM). (I have three 5m data cables heading to my laptop, three power cables, plus dew heater cables) A loud bang and a bright flash later I find that the power cable to my Canon coupler had completely blown off.. Needless to say, I have a Pegasus power box advance on order.. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
