So I ordered this scope form SVBony. 

 

https://www.svbony.c...ope-visual-set/

 

It arrived within a week, but without all of the accessories.  No mention of a separate package coming.  Anyone else have this problem?

 

Edit:  The chat also mentioned a free camera for orders over $500.  Nothing on that either.

No but simply contact them. They are responsive and will address the issue. I've purchased various items from them and had no issues from the items or them.

They have always been extremely responsive with me. When I was asking them technical details their customer service people went to buy caliphers to measure things I was asking. I have no doubt they will answer you.

Apparently they were in a separate shipment and will be arriving soon.  Waiting, waiting, waiting...

I bet they didn't send the mount in the pictures either.  4.gif

 

If they do send all of it, sounds like a good starter set.

Svbony is great! I ordered the filter drawer and didn't realize it only came with 1 adapter for 1.25 filters. Online everything was going for 20-30 dollars for a little plastic ring. I sent them a message and they were able to get one sent to me for 8 dollars.
