Hello,  I just received a new Sky-Watcher EQM35 Pro which I'm anxious to take out for a spin.  Oddly enough it came with no AC/DC adapter.  I have a field power source on order so not a huge issue, but is that normal?  confused1.gif   Also, since the Sky-Watcher site and other similar retailers list the S30105 12V adapter as back-ordered until who knows when (I get it, not a normal time for any of us) does anyone know of an alternative adapter that would work instead?  The end of the power cable has a lighter plug.

 

Thanks for reading.

I’ve had mine for about a month now. The power situation is strange with the stuff they include. The first couple nights I goofed it up to a battery.
I ordered a 12v 5a power supply of Amazon. It was around $10. Maybe it won’t last as long as the $40 ones but so far it’s fine.
