Hi David -
By fresh batteries, I mean a fully charged deep cycle. Mine was about 6 years old, so I replaced it with an AGM deep cycle today. It’s a 60 amp hour battery, which should be enough capacity for a 5 hour imaging session.
My original power box with a group 24 lead acid battery powered a cooled DSLR, an NEQ6, an Intel Compute Stick, Moonlite focuser, a powered USB hub, and a Surface Pro for about 5 hours.
I’m going to put an ammeter in-line on the power supply to the PMC-8 to see what the real time consumption is while slewing and tracking.
I’ll post my findings as well.
