I've got another proper powered USB 3 cable now, so I can go laptop - mount - camera.

I've did some testing this morning with the ASI1600. Seems to be no problem running it at full speed, i.e. I did not have to drop the USB limit in the ASCOM driver config.

So as far as I can tell right now, the through the mount USB3 is working well. For my setup this is important to reduce cables and the need for an external hub. The filter wheel is USB connected to the camera. The focuser can work off USB 2 ok, so I'll use another port on the mount for that.

The pier construction is underway, with a rough ETA of 3 weeks or so. I have no way of doing "under the stars" testing until then.
