12v Talent cell


Post by Ylem »

I picked this up for easy power for my Nexstar mount;

I Velcro-ed it to the top so no more cord wrap issues. It also has USB for phone/tablet charging. Came with the proper 2.1/5.5 mm tip + also :)
I mostly just use this mount for tracking, a one star alignment on a planet or Polaris and the AA batteries will last me like 5 sessions.

If I do use goto I run AC power to it.

But this looks like a nice solution :)
