Hello everyone,

Being my first post, please be kind!

Last week I picked up a very gently used Celestron Powerstar. I believe that it is the 3rd model, based on the accessories that came with the scope. However, there was not a AC power adapter supplied in the deal.

My question: Does anyone happen to know the proper amp rating, plug size, and polarity for the adapter? I do know that it takes 12 volt.

Any help would be appreciated.

Should be an M type coaxial plug 5.5mm by 2.1 pin. Center pin positive, 1 to 2 amp. Have a few nice 2 amp switching supplies fairly cheap that will work fine. PM me if interested.
