The Pocket Powerbox is a handy little power distribution unit perfect for most astrophotographers looking to streamline and clean up the mess of cables and chords that typically happens with most telescope setups.
I had a chance to try out a Power Pocketbox thanks for KWtelescope.com who were kind of enough to lend me one for this review.
I really like the products Pegasus Astro is producing for the amateur astronomy and astrophotography markets. Well thought out and useful designs that aid the user in improving their setup which has many benefits, including reducing cables snags but not limited to that.
A cleaner, better cable management for your telescope is not only visually appealing (vs the common rats nest of cables!) but also improves functionality and performance.

My story began more than 40 years ago looking up at the Moon with a small collapsible telescope my Father had. Encouraged by my parents, who bought me my very own telescope, a 4.5″ reflector, I began to explore the night sky from my family home backyard. Today I do astrophotography from my home in Kitchener, Ontario and also with remote telescopes located in New Mexico and Australia. Some of my images have won awards and have been featured online and in magazines.
