    Sean, I have watched the two videos on cable management through Youtube (Astro-imaging Channel and Roswell).  I liked the idea so I ordered everything….now I am confused what should I power.  For example do I need to cut a USB cord that originally came out of the computer and into the camera?  In other words there is a USB connector at both ends.  I really would like some help.    Not sure I understand how the Anderson distributor panel is connected to the powered USB hub.

    Thanks, Jerry

    No you should not have to cut any USB cables.  Try to find you some short ones and just coil up the extra and hide it somewhere under a plate or the scope.

    The power cables are what you cut if they have cigarette lighter adapters on the end, or you could just find some old power cables from something else as long as the center pin is positive and it fits snug in your device.

    Once you cut the power cable you use your meter to determine which one of the two wires is the center pin (hot) and which one is the outer porting (negative)

    Then simply put the hot wire on the red power pole clip and the negative on the black clip and plug it into your power pole.

    Meter them all first to ensure everything is correct before plugging them into your device.

    You can email me directly at smolony@redstickastro.com if you have any other questions.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Thanks, Sean
