How long wil this power pack last, just using a Nexstar 5se telescope?
Asked by: A,E.
The PowerTank Lithium LT Power Pack has a built-in 12 volt regulating circuit which is able to provide the NexStar 5SE with consistent power for up to 8 hours at the proper voltage for optimum performance. Please note that consistent slewing will decrease the power duration.
