This JMI molded hard case will hold a 6” or 8” Meade LS or LT Schmidt-Cassegrains as well as 8” Meade LS or LT Advanced Coma-Free catadioptric telescopes. The case has a “bay window” extension in the side specifically shaped to cradle and protect the CCD imager that is mounted under each LS scope’s optical tube.
The exterior includes two latches (one lockable), a luggage-style retractable handle (for towing), two steel-reinforced handles (for lifting), a single and very durable 2” wide by 23” long steel piano hinge for the lid, and a pair of wheels at one end for more easily transporting the scope. The case can either be carried or pulled using the attached wheels.
Inside, the die-cut foam lining is precisely sized and cut to cradle your 6” scope securely. Two strips of foam are easily removed to accommodate the larger 8” Meade scopes. There are compartments for your telescope, eyepieces, and other accessories. A protective soft pouch is included for the hand unit and connecting cable. An automatic-repositioning quick-release finder bracket is also included. This bracket allows the red dot finder to be removed and placed in the carrying case without losing positioning. Simply reinstall the red dot finder with a single thumbscrew and you are ready to go.
The outside dimensions of the case are approximately 27.4” x 20” x 17.9” and its empty weight is approximately 18.4 lbs. The shipping box is approximately 32” x 23.25” x 17.75”. However, because of its dimensions, the case is considered to be oversized by the shipping companies. They charge air shipping as if the case weighed 69 lbs, instead of its actual shipping weight of 24.7 lbs. All values are subject to slight changes.
