Measure the voltage yourself to see exactly what yours is putting out. I no longer use Pyramid power supplies, but when I did, mine put out 13.9v DC no-load.
I can’t recall exactly, but I seem to remember Chris recommending knocking the mount’s fastest slew speed down to 600x also. The mount draws a lot less current at that speed.

I am using a Pyramid power supply to power my Mach1. I believe it is the same model Astro-Physics sells.
If the weather is clear Friday I plan to observe. The temp is going to be on or about 10 t0 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Will that output voltage from the Pyramid be ok at those low temps?
