Quote:Price performance. At this current level...the battery really should be able to supply several amps for full-speed-ahead slewing and be able to do that intermittently for up to 11-12 hours...an Li is not too practical. What you want is a good 17ah lead acid battery, a jump-start battery, not the problem-plagued Celestron Powertank. One will last for YEARS if you treat it properly. Treating one properly is simple:Charge for 12 hours after each use.Charge for 12 hours each month if the battery has not been used.That's all there is to it. Plenty of capacity for not much $$$. What more could you want?
