Broken plastic foot on EQ5 tripod


Recommended Posts

Hi, one of the pointed plastic feet on my EQ5 tripod has cracked and fallen off. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement, and what glue to use to put it on? I've tried Astroboot but there doesn't seem to be anything on there at the moment.

Contact the company direct.  A friend of mine contacted another company about a broken tube ring and they sent one for free ! 

It was second hand unfortunately. I've had it a while now.

I think jabeoo1 meant to contact Optical Vision who are the importers for SkyWatcher

Ah I see, I've contacted them already, just wondering if there was anywhere else in case that falls through.

I did mean that Uplooker, sorry it was not clearer cuivenion.  

The scope belonged to my friend who gave it as a gift to another friend, and it was over 10 years old.  They still sent replacements for free :)

Good luck!
