Re: Through the mount USB3.0 on Mach2 trouble unrelated to temp

Hopefully you get your usb communication problem solved. I think you will like the features of the Pegasus hub. Besides the cold temp capability, I like the ability to turn ports on and off with the app. Handy for me with my Starlight Xpress filter wheel that sometimes loses communication with the computer and needs to be rebooted.
Regards and good luck

That is a nice short repeater/booster for sure. My issue with it is that it has a female connection and so does the mount. So I would have to add yet another connection between. Also it seems to be bus powered. This "booster" can't create energy out of nowhere. My computer is right next to the female USB3 slot in the bottom of the mount and I am using a 1 foot USB 3.0 cable. If the signal and voltage drops that much along a 1 foot cable that I would need a repeater at the end of it, I am not sure what I am even doing.
I have a total of 48 inches from the port on the PC to the 12v powered hub. I have 24 inches after the hub to the camera. I have ordered new cables and the Pegasus usb hub. I'll know more in a week.
