Sent: Wednesday, April 27, 2011 18:41:08 From: Mike Amonett (firstname.lastname@example.org) I have a suggestion for those of us who have nowhere to store items like the autostar or a small external 12v battery pack. I picked up a couple of conduit hangers at Lowe's for less than a dollar each. These hangers have a hole that is used to attach the hanger to the building material and a round "clamp" that will attach around a tripod leg. Next attach a piece flat aluminum stock with a counter sunk hole and screw to the hole that is intended as the building material mounting hole. Next place VELCRO on the flat aluminum stock and you have a secure place to hang your "goddies". I made a 12v 4.4ah LI-ION battery pack (of my own design), and designed a charger for it, simple but effective. It hangs one leg of the tripod and the autostar on another. This is how I power my ETX-125. Mike Amonett
