Re: Best way to connect power cables in remote observatory

Barry Megdal

I would suggest running whatever devices are sharing the same power (perhaps main and guide camera and focuser (and maybe dew heater depending if the controller you use generates noise) from a RigRunner mounted on top of the scope, and then you only need one power cable up through the scope to the RigRunner.
