Jeff,
I've put together a power distribution box that connects to a 12 volt deep cycle battery.
I'm running two laptops one for the mount and guide camera, the other for imaging.

Instead of a power inverter, I purchased from Amazon a 12 volt to 19.7 volt inverter for my laptops.  These adapters are already for 12 volt "cigarette lighter" sockets so all you have to do is plug them in. CAR Charger 90W 65W 45W for HP-Envy-Pavilion Touchsmart-Sleekbook 15 17 M6 M7 Series; Hp Spectre X360, Pro x360 G2; Pavilion X360 EliteBook X360 DC Auto Adapter Power Cord Extra Long 10 Ft. CAR Charger 90W 65W 45W for HP-Envy-Pavilion Touchsmart-Sleekbook 15 17 M6 M7 Series; Hp Spectre X360, Pro x360 G2; Pavilion X360 EliteBook X360 DC Auto Adapter Power Cord Extra Long 10 Ft
