Re: Focus socket problems

You should be able to find an audio socket at just about any electronics
store - from Radio Shack to any that sells home audio/video systems. It's
really a plain vanilla socket.

Just to clarify - it's the socket in the CP2 which is loose, not the
socket in the JMI.

Hi all,

Over the last couple of outings I've been having problems with the
focus output socket on my 4-5 year old CP2 AP900.
When I plug in the cable to my JMI focuser, the plug seems to be very
lose and the connection is intermittent - often I get no focuser
movement until I move the plug around a bit.

I'm guessing the spring connection in the socket is either broken or
worn, more likely the former given it's sudden degradation.

Does anyone know of a source of replacement sockets?
I assume it's a 3.5mm mono socket?
