Still pier collisions!

When I imaged the Bubble Nebula, I still experienced pier collisions. The filter wheel banged into the AP control box:

I tried to put the control box in other positions, but unfortunately, it has to stay in the back. The solution was an extension cable from Astro-Physics:
CABGTO24 - Extension Cable for the AP Control Box
With that cable, I can mount the control box much lower and it can't interfere with the scope/filter wheel anymore:
