ME main plate updated

Dietmar and I continue to discuss rerouting wires, data and power, inside the Paramount ME. It is designed for it. And we're getting quite a rat's nest of cables. One of the things I was curious about was the "adaptability" of the Versa plate. My impression is that it is somewhat universal and will support some modern connectors.

I asked that he take a look at Ostap's newer MX. He reported that the new Paramount has a USB and lost its parallel. Makes sense.

[ed: I initially titled this article "Versa plate updated" but the Versa plate is the adapter plate between the mount and telescope, at the top of the mount.]
