Derek,
I have a 10A 12V transformer (in fact I use two!) to feed all my cameras (Lodestar, DMK51, ATiK 314) and the USB powered Hub (through a step down converter 12V to 6V)
The other powers the mount etc - I have a 12v to 15V converter for the NEQ6.
A Turnigy power monitor is also in the loop to check voltage and power.

ZWO sells a camera power supply on their website store:

https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com...ooled-cameras/

Better check on which plug to order for our system.

Or just buy one off evay, plenty of 12v 5a LED power supplies on ebay au. I use one for my 1600. Easy to pick up some plugs at Jaycar, in fact Jaycar has a power supply as well. Lots of choices.
