Cable Routers for Celestron telescopes are now available from the Buckeyestargazer Shop. Joel Short, an astroimaging enthusiast located in Northern Indiana, opened the Buckeyestargazer Shop to make available items he has developed to offer affordable and uncomplicated accessories. As Short comments, “These are simple and practical items that I have found to be essential for amateur astronomers.”
The new Cable Routers for Celestron telescopes positions the cables on a Celestron RASA or SCT with Hyperstar in a circular pattern and will eliminate diffraction spikes in images. As Short notes, “Traditional cable routers are a half loop that clip onto the front edge of the OTA, but that is not possible with the new Celestron aluminum dew shield. So, I took a different approach.”
There are two versions available. The original version is for telescopes without the newer Celestron aluminum dewshield. This traditional cable router clips onto the front rim of the telescope.
The new second version is for telescopes with the Celestron aluminum dewshield. The cable router uses a slip fit ring that securely holds the cable router on the camera and presents a hoop that routes the cables to the inside wall of the dewshield and down to the cable slot in the dewshield. This version also has cable clips so other means of securing the cables are not necessary and the cables can quickly be removed.
