New guy here. Been lurking on this forum for some time gathering intel on setting up my first DSO rig. I've learned lot's in the last few months as I've ordered all the required parts. Thanks for all the info I've gleaned. Of course it's been a process as many items are on backorder. All I'm waiting on now is the tripod.......yeah...the tripod. I ordered an HEQ-5 from a large optics retailer back in December. The mount head showed up 9 Jan but not the tripod. The website says the tripod is included but customer service (misnomer) says it's not. I have an email into them with a link on their website so we'll see what they come back with. Question, has anyone bought these Equatorial Mounts AND not got the tripod with it?
Looking forward to first light then the inevitable post for help with processing. Thanks guys!!
