I never ever remember doing a second POP at Chucks studio
Other studios I worked with yes but , never with the Sun Gun so Chuck must of had more capacitors as I said than you for I can remember shots with real long lenses and a bunch of bellows extensions with just one POP, or a loud POP and the shot was done... Great Memories...
Ascorlight QC-8 Sync Cord
My father was a freelance photographer in New York in the 60s and 70s and did some commercial work. He used an Ascorlight QC-8 Flash System for some location shoots, but I don't remember him having any issues with it. Fast forward almost 40 years, and needless to say, after reading all the stories about the Ascor units, I was a little nervous to plug in the power supply and test it with the flash heads. I am happy to report that it worked flawlessly. I am very impressed with its performance.
I was wondering if by any chance someone might have the sync cord that is compatible with the Ascorlight QC-8 Electronic Flash System? I do not know what happened to it. According to the Ascorlight manual, it was a 9 ft. sync cord with microphone connector, Model #081-106. It’s described as having a locking ring on the microphone type connector. The sync socket on the QC-8 is 5/8” in diameter and threaded around outside with a 3/16” metal contact in the center.
