Wiring schematic for my Dual Scope rig


Dual scope rig using a Takahashi TOA130 and a Takahashi FSQ106 scopes. The lower scope uses an Optec Gemini focuser and a QSI 638 camera (L, R, G, B, Ha, C2, CO, CN filters). The upper scope uses a Feather Touch FTF3515 focuser, SX Maxiwheel (L, R, G, B, Ha, OIII, C2, CO, CN filters) and SX-46 camera.

The schematic lists all "on-board" computers, power management, USB devices, the power switching lines and sensor sets. Only 3 cables are normally connected to off-board sources: 12v input, ethernet and mount on/off control. If non-remote access is required then a 4th HDMI/DP cable is connected from the on-board computer to an off-board monitor screen.

The off-board schematics are (click images to expand):

1. Unit interconnections
