LX200GPS Anti-Power-Out Cable

Anti-Power-Out Cable
A bridging cable to reduce the risk of sudden power shutdowns
caused by the power lead being pulled from it's socket during a move.

The risk of power "outs" during automatic set-up or during a GOTO move is just such a snag, caused by cables pulling on the power jack plug as the telescope slews from one position to another. Our "fix" for this is a simple right-angle plug that has a lower profile than most straight jack plugs. The cable has a 2.5mm female socket at one end, and a 2.5mm right angle plug at the other.
