I've seen pictures of some setups where electronics boxes like mini pc's, dew controllers, USB hubs, etc, are mounted conveniently to the scope on an angle bracket that attaches to refractor mounting rings. Where can I find such a product or similar items to buy for my setup? I'm currently using an 80mm refractor with a vixen mounting bar on top for the guide scope, although I may upgrade in the future to Losmandy mounting rail.

Bump! I still need help with my cable management! Anyone know where to get the bracket holding the power box in this picture, from the Pegasus Astro website?

From the little I can see of it, it could be a L bracket from the hardware store bent out a bit...

I e-mailed Pegasus and they said they made that part in-house but may sell it in the future.
