About this product

Model:  lynxastro_pwr_az-eq6-mnt_cig

Premium quality, super flexible, cold resistant silicone 2 or 5 metre replacement power leads with Cigar Lighter plug or M8 Ring Tongues to 12mm, 2-pin DC Jack.

For use with Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 / AZ-EQ6 and EQ6-R mounts.

Lynx Astro power cables remain soft and flexible, even in the sub-zero temperatures often experienced by astronomers.

Each lead is individually tested for electrical continuity, shorts and power load during manufacture smiley


  • Over-spec' 12 amp rated silicone cable remains soft and flexible, even at sub-zero temperatures, so is less likely to twist and tangle like cheap alternatives.
  • High quality cigar-lighter plug with red power indicator and cable-restraint to prevent damage. 
  • Cigar-lighter plug rated to 5 amp, fitted with a 5 amp fast-blow fuse.
  • Cables with ring-tongues are fitted with M8 Ring Tongues (fit over M6 and M8 connector posts)
  • Mount  Jacks have over-long heat-shrink sleeving applied for additional protection against dew and damp
  • Every lead individually tested for electrical continuity, shorts and power load during manufacture. 

Please check your product's manual for use and suitability. 

Please note: Cables ending in ring-tongues are unfused, please ensure your PSU has a suitable fuse or circuit breaker to protect your mounts electronics. We accept no responsibility for equipment damaged as a result of using an incorrect cable, incorrect power orientation or connection without a suitable fuse.

I know these are Ďjustí cables but they are beautifully constructed, feel great, donít tangle and are super-flexible. They are more expensive than standard cables but if you want a carefree power setup then these cables are well worth the money. Fully recommended.

I should have purchased this over a year ago. This power cable is far superior to the OEM cable.

Simple well made quality product..

I have never been disappointed with a Lynx product, this one is no exception. The silicon wire is very flexible and less prone to snag. A big improvement over the rubbish cable supplied with EQ6 Pro R which failed after 6 months due to poor soldering.

Very nice cable but...
Wednesday, 29 April 2020  | 

The cable in general is a big improvement over the OEM cable provided with the mount (very flexible even at -20C). The only problem I have had is that after almost 3 months of use, the black sleeve protecting the cable at the end of the connector has broken, I guess due to the movement of the mount head from one side to another. Other than that, First Light Optics managed my order in a very professional way. I was reluctant to buy from an oversea buyer (I live in Canada) but I won't hesitate to do it with FLO.


The sleeving should only become damaged if is is subjected to excessive strain. If yours has failed under normal use please get in touch with us and we can arrange to repair / replace it.

Quality cable

This is a high quality cable that I don't have any concerns about running outside to supply power to my mount.. As already stated, great in the cold as well with no loss of flexibility.

Power lead upgrade

This lead is worth every penny. It remains very flexible at low temperatures and its length enables an indoor power supply to be used.
