I have had no luck trying to find a power cable to use from my pocket powerbox to my SBIG 8300C. Pegasus sends you 5 connection cables that work just fine with my ASI cameras, but does not appear that they offer a cable that would work with the SBIG. I beleive it's 2.2mm connection at the powerbox, but SBIG uses a screw in type connector at the camera. Finding a cable like this would keep everything above the mount with no hanging cords.

I have an older ST-8300C which uses a Switchcraft S760K jack.  I'm not sure if the STF 8300C uses the same.  If it does, you can order theses jacks from DigiKey.  I made my own cable for a PowerWerx power supply which would have a different powerbox end compared to the pocket powerbox.  If you do make your own cable make sure you wire positive and negative correctly as my ST-8300C is center-positive.
