Title kinda says it all. What specific power supply/jack are you guys using for this camera?

While your here...Anyone have a photo of the rear of this model so I can get a visual of what plugs in where?

Btw.. I looked all over the net looking so the better half suggested I ask you guys.

Thank you.

Well, if you all just want to read and not answer then here is something to think about:

 

the drake equation: c-p from wiki

 

R∗, the average rate of star formations, in our galaxy,
    fp, the fraction of formed stars that have planets,
    ne for stars that have planets, the average number of planets that can potentially support life,
    fl, the fraction of those planets that actually develop life,
    fi, the fraction of planets bearing life on which intelligent, civilized life, has developed,
    fc, the fraction of these civilizations that have developed communications, i.e., technologies that release detectable signs into space, and
    L, the length of time over which such civilizations release detectable signals,

for a combined expression of:

    N = R ∗ ⋅ f p ⋅ n e ⋅ f l ⋅ f i ⋅ f c ⋅ L {\displaystyle N=R_{*}\cdot f_{\mathrm {p} }\cdot n_{\mathrm {e} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {l} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {i} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {c} }\cdot L} {\displaystyle N=R_{*}\cdot f_{\mathrm {p} }\cdot n_{\mathrm {e} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {l} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {i} }\cdot f_{\mathrm {c} }\cdot L}

Keith, I think you didn’t get answers because not many here have that camera. I use a 12v 30 amp power supply that feeds all my equipment, including my ZWO camera...that way I eliminated multiple power bricks and just have one supply for all my 12v stuff. Very convenient.

It's all good OMS as it will be here l8r this week or early next and I can see it for myself.I like the powerwerk/rigrunner idea for a 12 volt bus on the mount. You have a good day.

It uses a screw collar 2.5mm plug for power with a female other end) and a USB 3.0 type B plug for communication. I used a Startech powered USB hub and Anderson Powerpole splitter on the rig (used that for years); but have switched over to a Pegasus Astro Ultimate Powerbox V2, which I love to death. I had the 367C and 367M, but now have the 128C, but it’s the same camera, different chip.

fwiw= for what it's worth

It's just a tag like "cool" or "awesome" as I appreciated your feedback.

Yeah, I knew what it stood for. The context just took me by surprise, as I’ve almost exclusively seen it to trivialize a point, like “that’s just my two cents,” which didn’t seem right in your reply.

Here’s a pic of the back: https://www.bing.com...,3,4,6,8&sim=11

Thank you for the pic of the rear,I'm surprised that qhy doesn't post that view.

Re fwiw, I use that a lot on the web as in real life I could buy you a coffee or beer but on here all you get is a thank you (fwiw). Absolutely zero negative connotation intended.

Anyhow, Thank you again

Yeah, not even in their manual!

 

I never thought there was anything negative, just that there was another meaning I hadn’t run across.

 

I really like the 367, even over the 128.
