    Are the off-the-shelf USB-A to USB-B cables in the shorter lengths (2 meters or less) OK to use with the SBIG cameras ?

    The maximum length for USB 2.0 cables is 5 meters (16.5 feet). As long as the cables are good quality and the total length does not exceed that, you should be fine.

    Caveat: the ST-I is powered through USB and requires thicker gauge power wiring in the cable. "Just any cable" won't work if it is the maximum length.
