Tell me......is there the cable in the box to connect the hand controller to the sky fi module?
How can i provide power to the mount with a cigar lighter socket into my 24 amp hour battery when the power connector loojs unusual with its screw on collar?

I bought the SkyWatcher cable from Souther Stars, but I think the cable that came with the mount for updating the firmware will properly interface the hand controller to the SkyFi unit.
My AZ-EQ6 came with a cable that screwed onto the mount and on the other end was a male cigarette plug. The battery box I made has 3 female cigarette plug adapters mounted to it, so I just plugged the supplied power cord into my power supply.
See the image below showing the 26AH battery box sitting on the TPI tray and spreader I added to the tripod.

Do you know the maximum load the mount can hold in alt az?
