Lidl Power pack jack type required

Just got this and the power jack supplied doesn't fit my Celestar. Just wondering if anyone who has a Celestar knows the size and type of jack required?

Dont have a celestar, but the guarnteeded way to get it to work would be to get a Car Battery Adater www.celestron.com/prod_pgs/accessories/power_supplies.htm

A decent electronics shop should be able to sort you out with something compatible.

hth,

Hi All,
I had a look at this power pack in Lidl yesterday, it can supply up to a maximum of only 1 amp, thats grand if all you intend running is your scope.
However, if you intend running a dew heater off this you need to be carefull, my dew heater draws more current then this,
so this power pack is useless to me, unfortunately. :cry:
Just careful not to overload it. :!:
