Delivery was fast and secure.
Had this arrive the other day and it is just awesome Compact form factor and managed to get everything to plug in easily enough Has made the cable management on the mount so clean and tidy and the setup was a breeze Have got it controlling/powering the mount, DSLR, guide scope and dew heaters Had a few questions about this and OPT was more than happy to help sort things out and delivery was super quick and well packaged up ... couldn't have asked for more help Would well recommend both OPT and the hardware
What an outstanding little device. It is considerably smaller than I thought it would be - even after reading the dimensions and seeing photos of it. The unit itself is well constructed of blue anodized aluminum. I especially like that Pegasus includes a number of accessories/cables with the unit. Installation is an absolute breeze as well. Wait, installation? This isn't something you NEED to do. By default, the PPBA has the 4 12V DC outs on, the 2 dew heater RCA outs are on "auto dew" and the adjustable output is set to 3V. You can just use it as is without ever installing any software. However, if you want to actually control different aspects like adjusting that DC out to 8V instead of 3, or taking manual control of the dew heater, then you need to install the Pegasus software. If, like me, you also want to control and manage it through other applications, you install the ASCOM drivers. All of this worked flawlessly. Now I've got the switch and weather available in NINA. I also want to comment on OPT and the outstanding service I received. I had a question and typed it into the live chat. Angel responded to me almost immediately and was extremely helpful. When I placed my order, the item was shipped the same day. It was packaged extremely well in an appropriately sized box with plenty of packing peanuts for protection.
The PPBA is a great unit for providing power and connectivity especially on smaller rigs where space and weight are important. This is my 3rd unit. I also own 2 UPB's. The quality of these units is outstanding and worth the price. I was glad OPT had these in stock. delivery was quick from time of order
Pricey but not OPTs fault. Got it quick and it works great.
Worth the price to take my astro rig to the next level, and do so while de-cluttering my cabling.
