Hi everyone,
I recently obtained one of the Celestron Nightscape 95555 which uses the Kodak KAI-10100 sensor from a sale Astronomics recently held. Anyone who receives their product newsletter will have seen it. It’s been refitted with new parts from diffraction limited and has a reinforced usb port. My thing is, it comes with a 12V DC car charger and I would like to use a 12C AC wall adapter. The handbook says there is an optional wall adapter for it, which I’m sure has long been discontinued. Does anyone know where I can obtain one? Or is there another solution? I know it might sound like a dumb question but I want to make sure whatever I use is compatible and doesn’t cause any problems. Thanks!

Moderator(s) if I’ve placed this in the wrong topic, you can either delete this or move it. Here’s a photo of the camera and current power supply in question. It’s definitely a 12V DC charger but I need to know which tip plug it is because I’m fairly certain I will have to buy a third party charger as Celestron discontinued not only the camera but all of its accessories.

This camera uses the Celestron 110V AC to 12V DC adapter (model #18778). It's available from a number of sources including Adorama:

.... and on eBay:

The source for this information on the correct power supply is available from the "Nightscape Setup Guide" in the section on "Powering Nightscape":

Good Luck with your new camera. Please post your impressions on this remanufactured camera along with some test images.
