Thanks. A couple of questions:
 is the cable available only at the length that is supplied with the camera or can it be ordered to shorter length (3'-0")?
 I use the camera attached to my telescope on a tracking mount and I use them not at home, I use them outdoors. Would shielding be required then? Why is the cable shielded as heavily as it is?
 How do I contact your company to order replacement cable? I didn't find any links on the website.
we provide USB2.0 short cables which come with cooled 1600 and it's fixed length
I think Shielding is not required for consumer environment
