      The SBIG relay box will do the job. You must have it or something similar to
      use the SBIG cameras with the G-11. And always remember to put both devices
      on different power circuits when working off batteries! I recommend one
      battery for the mount, and one for everything else. Optimal is at least
      three batteries: mount, camera, and the rest of your stuff.

      Thanks, will the relay box from SBIG be as good as an isolation circuit,
      or is the relay box the same thing.
