Lately I've been having some connection problems. For those of you who have an observatory or your equipment permanently located in your backyard, what USB and ethernet cables are you using?

 

Thanks,

Amazon Basics.  I've been using them for years with ZWO cameras and not a problem.

I usually use Amazon Basics as well. If I can’t find what I need, I look for cables that have lots of reviews and good ratings. I have other cables that didn’t work well. Which is pretty frustrating out under the stars. The acid test is to do high speed imaging during daylight hours at max frame rates.
