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, EQ6-R & EQ8-R (not EQ-8) 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.

Much better than the Skywatcher power lead

Great cable and with it being silicone based, it doesnít mind the cold nights !

Works perfectly with my AZEQ6 mount. The only thing Iím considering is getting rid of the cigarette plug and changing to Anderson PowerPole connectors which I have on my home-made Power tank. Using the Anderson connectors would make a much more secure fit so Iíll probably try that. That said, the cable has never let me down so definitely a good purchase. Excellent fast delivery from FLO as usual !

Lynx - power cable for EQ6 (AZ & R) mounts
Wednesday, 29 December 2021  | 

Very good quality product - well made
similar to cables I used for heavy industrial precision survey equipment - they lasted a very long time without failure
Whilst not having enough cloud free nights to truly test it in the cold - it works very well during the tests in daylight
I have no doubt these will outlast me
Highly recommended

Great cable and service
Wednesday, 22 December 2021  | 

I ordered this particular cable for my new Eq8 R pro mount as I don't really like original cable supplied with it. I use lynx cable's as I find them extremely reliable particularly as I live in a humid climate with dew more often than not accumulating after an observing session. Service from Flo as usual was fantastic, many thanks.

Very good quality cable, well made and very flexible, far superior to Skywatcher Oem cable, well worth the price.

Much better than the SW supplied cablr
Friday, 10 December 2021  | 

You would think that SW would supply good quality cables with an AZEQ6 mount.
Mine died when it got trapped between the mount and the tripod.
The Lynx replacement is heavier so doesn't get dragged into the gap and it's much better build quality.

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.

Better than original

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