I have been given a used AP400 mount. The mount came with a homemade power supply for the main net. Using the main net and a 230VAC to 12VDC converter is nice if you have an observatory, but annoying if going mobile.
Because of this I have made a cable with a cigar lighter-plug and a cylindrical connector so it will be possible to supply the mount from a 12 V battery. But the cylindrical connector, which is metric, is not a tight fit, causing the mount to lose power once in a while.
Can anybody tell me the dimension or type of the original AP cylindrical connector? I suppose it is some US-MIL specification??
