Does anyone know the specs for the power barrel connector for the Meade LX85 mount?  5.5mm x 2.1mm?  5.5mm x 2.5mm?  At first glance it seems like a standard 5.5 mm barrel, but for me only the Meade cable will fit the LX85 mount.  Other cables /connectors go in only so far and don't make engage the center pin.  Even an older cable which works with my old LX50 goes in but doesn't make contact with the center pin.

 

I'm trying to connect power from my new ASIAir Pro to the LX85 mount, but have had no luck so far.  I'm thinking I will need to make a special cable or an adapter to make this power connection work but need to find the right connector.

 

Thanks
