Anyone figured out how to make (or acquire) an extra slow motion control cable for a Voyager? What I need is one that is truly flexible so that it doesn't hit the OTA when used on the azimuth knob. From what I can see, none of ones out there fit the Voyager. I like the mount but this is preventing me from truly enjoying the mount to the fullest in the field.
Right on - the short, stiff cable on the azimuth contact the tube of my 100ED - kind of a nuisance.
We need a longer, more flexible one.
I tried the cables from the AZ3, but the connector is too large.

I bought a pair of the cables you linked to and will perform surgery on them when I get 'em to see if they can be drilled out.
I have some that look pretty close to the same as the Antares and there seems to be enough metal to drill 1.5MM away so they just might work.

I managed to summon the strength and energy after work today to perform the out patient op.

So does this mean that "cool I was able to make one of these flexible cables work on a Voyager" or "this wasn't a big deal and I should be able to offer these flexible cables for the Voyager at a good price"?
