My EAF and WiFi extender arrived which leaves only one port left for an EFW should I ever new one!

There is one power, one USB and one ST4 that need to be attached to the mount, otherwise the OTA can be carried fully assembled and with no leads dragging about

Now to actually use the thing

The straps are from ProAstroz, but cut down and re-wired to keep them ultra short and they have a built in rheostat temp control that works just fine (If you get the direction of flow right!). The rings are the same but the bar is different, I use an AZ-EQ5 mount that has a vixen plate, so I modified a vixen bar to suit and added a grab handle from Bunnings which works very well.
