Product Description

This leatherette-covered plywood case is designed to store and transport the Coronado Personal Solar Telescope (PST). The external dimensions of the case are 6.5" x 8.5" x 18.5". It has a carrying handle, metal corner reinforcements, metal hinges, and non-locking metal toggles to hold it shut. The case is supplied without interior foam, as shown in the first product feature image. The die-cut foam from the PST shipping carton is designed to hold the scope in this carrying case, as shown in the second product feature image. The rigid telescope shipping foam is precisely sized to fit in this case and is die cut to hold the PST, several eyepieces, and an optional tabletop tripod. Even if you don't buy the carrying case now, do not discard the foam from the shipping carton when you receive your scope. You will need the foam, should you later decide to add this case.

Review by:
Nice looking case, but the faux leather exterior accumulates a lot of visible nicks and dings. If you didn't save the foam box insert that came with your PST you're out of luck, because the case doesn't include it which seems ridiculous given the price. Still, it's a quality case that protects the PST securely. The wood panels are easy enough to drill through to install an engraved name plate. (Posted on 7/24/2019)
