    I have a yeti 400 lithium and it powers my nexstar easily, while running our cameras and apple devices. It's light and east to recharge. Yes, it's expensive, but, doesn't your scope deserve the best?

    If your telescopes/mounts take <3 amps of current at 12 VDC, I found the most cost-effective and portable option is to use a typical 5V output cellphone charging power bank with a 5V to 12V conversion cable!
