star adventurer question

I am trying to find out more info but i cant find answers anywhere online. I just ordered the Star adventurer Astro pack. I then bought the counterweight kit. I would have gotten the pro but its sold out everywhere and I need it in the next two weeks. Basically what I am trying to find out is I have an Acratech Long lens head for my camera work and wanted to know how well the star adventurer works with it. Does anyone NOT use the EQ wedge base with this tracker? and would i be better off buying it separately at $65 or use what i got?

I also bought a shutter release cable for my R5 to connect to the adventurer, hope that works well. I am going out into the desert on a 5 night camping trip and just want to make sure i have everything i need. I have done lots of astro work in the past but never with a tracker. This will be my first. I plan to do some deep space stuff, and have the R5 and RF70-200 f2.8 so hopefully that will be sufficient for some stuff.
