Kendrick Astro Instruments

Welcome to Kendrick Astro Instruments, recognized worldwide for innovation and quality low voltage heater and power products. Kendrick Astro Instruments have been in the low voltage heater business for over 25 years pioneering the use of heater "systems" to control misting, dew and frost on optics, camera lenses, telescopes lenses and mirrors as well as cold weather performance of cold sensitive electronic devices.

News Flash - June 7 - Summer Sale on over 170 Products

It's that season again. Don't miss out on the savings. Prices reduced on over 170 products! That includes Power Panels, Battery Packs, Bahtinov Focus Masks, Dew Heaters and Dew Controllers.

Not Just Dew Control! Power Management and Cord Management Too!

Kendrick delivers power for your other devices where it's needed with fewer cords.

  • Add our 12V USB Hub to reduce the number of wires even more. Why a 12V Hub? Because you already have 12V up there! We even add a small heater to keep the Hub dry inside. It can even be powered from your DigiFire Controller!

12V Powered USB 3.0, 7-Port Hub

NEW>>> NEW 12V Powered USB 3.0, 7-Port "Charging" Hub Now Available

The new USB 3.0 Hubs have arrived! Now In Stock! Order yours today!

Why use a USB Hub? There are an impressive number of USB devices: imaging camera, guide camera, focuser, filter wheel, adaptive optics, flats panel, etc. Each has its own USB cable and by using a USB Hub up on the telescope, you have only 1 cord that needs to come down from the mount.
Why a Powered Hub? Unpowered hubs just don't work. Even if you are lucky and have a mount with built-in USB, chances are, it's not powered. Without a powered hub, your computer becomes the power source and the computer is always quite a distance away. Power and signal (data) just doesn't have a fighting chance through those long cables.
Why 12V? Because 12V is what you use to power almost all of your devices! CCD Camera, Dew Controller, Focus Motor, etc. In most cases, a 12V power source is already up on the telescope. This eliminates 1 more cord that can get snagged when the mount slews.
12V Power Sources? You can power the Hub with your DigiFire 8/12 Controller OR a Power Panel. Placing thoses devices ON THE TELESCOPE means that you can eliminate 1 more cord that won't need to come down from the telescope. Of course, you can also use the traditional cigarette lighter cord too.
