We were only promised a selection of mining gear.
FYI — I was just at Omega Mining Operations and the only equipment available is E class prospector and collector limpets. They have no mining lasers and you can forget seismic charge launchers.
Hopefully this changes for the community goal. Just in case get your mining equipment in the bubble before you get too far out.

Im at work and am unable to getinto my cockpit. is anyone online and can confirm mining gear is now available at Omega now the CG has started?
Just as an update, Omega Mining Corporation now has most mining tools available for purchase.
Mining Laser (Normal + MC Turret) : 1D/2D
Abrasion Blaster (Normal + MC Turret) : 1D
Subsurface Displacement Missile ((Normal + MC) : 1B/2B
Seismic Charge Launcher (Normal + MC) : 1B/2B
Cargo Racks : 1E - 6E
Collector Limpet Controller : 1,3,5 A-E
Prospector Limpet Controller : 1,3,5 A-E
Refinery : 1-4 A-E
The two omissions are the Pulse Wave Scanner and the Detailed Surface Scanner.
The latter I imagine every ship has anyway.
The PWS is a bit of a , but not necessary; it's just a QoL addition to mining. You can find motherlode asteroids using Prospector Limpets or by mining in a wing.
