Thanks for the tips on USB hubs. I assume that the Icron is a good
option. I will have to investigate my options for mounting it on my
dovetail plate since it is common to my three different imaging trains.
The Icron Raven _is_ a good USB 3 option, but the REX remote unit is large (5.4"x9.1"x1.3") and heavy (2.1 lbs). Plus, it has an external power supply with an AC power cord and a 24VDC cable to the REX. I don't think the REX is suitable for mounting on dovetail plate.

I mounted mine on a wood panel on the south side of my pier: <http://astronomy.mdodd.com/observatory.html#SouthPanel> For scale, the concrete pier is 12" in diameter.

I loop USB cables from the REX to equipment on the mount. <http://astronomy.mdodd.com/observatory.html#CableManagement>
