Shorter, Coiled USB2EQ5 Cable

Post by misterfied » Fri Jul 20, 2018 7:13 pm

I am currently running a Skywatcher AZ-EQ6-GT mount with one of your USB2EQ5 cables and all is good. I am in the process of cable management and have placed a 4 Port USB hub ( Mount - Focuser - Guide Camera - Imaging Camera ) on the telelecope ( Skywatcher Esprit 100 ) now what i need is a USB2EQ5 COILED STRETCHY CABLE to run approx 400 mm from the mount to the hub and still allow slewing of the scope..... ( and a 90 degree LEFT exit on the USB end would be AWESOME ) consider that an order if you like..... What i will finish up with is 1 USB cable running down to the laptop and 1 power cable running up to a power distribution board.... Thanks Craig Field ... Sydney Australia

I can look for some ways to do this, but unfortunately the stock FTDI cables only come in one style. Thank you for the suggestion.
