Good evening all, I just bit the bullet and ordered myself a ASI 533MC pro and am wondering about the power source/cord needed.

 

I'd hoped to run this off my celestron power tank with a cigarette lighter power cord, a long with my AVX mount and am wondering if this cable i see on Amazon will do the job? I asked about running both the mount & camera from the power tank and that seems plausible however all the power supplies i see are to be plugged into a wall socket that's fine if i'm at home but if i want to take my rig to a dark site, that's a problem.

 

One final question, as far as using from home anyone have a good power brick they recommend, I read the Zwo one has some issues, being very stiff cables and apparently on the short side.

 

Thank you.

5.5 x 2.1 sounds right, but double-check that spec somewhere if you can. Also it's almost sure to be center-pos but I'd try that with a multimeter before I plugged it into my camera.
