12V Powered USB 3.0, 7-Port "Charging"

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 FX-PRO 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.
