Congrats and you will enjoy using that mount Rossco. Ive had mine 5+ years and they are superb.

I recommend you get Nexremote then run it (without handbox) direct from your pc and use a wireless gamepad, its really cool :icon_eek:

They guide like a dream as well.

Nick,

The extension tube can be tricky, the bolts have a tendancy to loosen off and add flex to the head. Also, the recommended procedure of fixing the bottom of the tube to the tripod and use the AZ post and adjustment screws under the mount to make polar alignment changes is pretty useless. Trying to move the mount at all virtually impossible. It is much simpler to level the tripod head, then during polar alignment make any Az changes by loosening the extension at the tripod and wisting the whole mount and extension before tightening up again.

The extra height is good though!

Cheers

Stuart
