Description

Multi-use telescope Carrying Case for 8" SCTs

 

Celestron (Single Fork Arm) NexStar 8 / 8i / 8 SE / 8i SE (Special Edition) (may include optional GPS accessory); Meade LX50 8", LX90 8", LX90-ACF 8", LX90GPS 8", LX100 8", LX200 8" (both GPS and non-GPS), LX200-ACF 8", LX200GPS 8", LX200R 8"

 

The case includes four latches (two lockable), three steel-reinforced handles, a 2" by 26" steel hinge and die-cut foam lining with compartments for telescope, eyepieces, finder scope and accessories.  The finder scope must be removed from the telescope and placed in a foam compartment.  A soft bag is included for hand unit protection.  The case can be carried or pulled using the attached wheels.  An optional Large-Wheel Upgrade is available.

When used for the Meade LX90, the LNT Module and SmartFinder must be removed and stored in the case.  A quick-release bracket is included (see picture below) for instant accurate repositioning when attaching the LNT Module.  (This bracket can be used for other finders also.)

Outside dimensions of the case are approximately 32" x 21-1/2" x 13-5/8" and its empty weight is approximately 18.0 lbs.  The shipping box is approximately 32" x 14" x 22-1/2" and the shipping weight is approximately 22.8 lbs.  All values are subject to slight changes.

 

Note:

The foam for this case is manufactuered with pre-cut removable strips to convert the cavity configuration from the NexStar Single Fork Arm shape, the LX90 shape to the LX50/100/200 shape.  READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY TO DETERMINE WHICH FOAM PIECES TO REMOVE.  IF YOU REMOVE THE INCORRECT PIECES, THEY WILL HAVE TO BE GLUED BACK IN PLACE.

 

The JMI carrying cases are manufactuered with exact-fit die-cut foam to hold the telescope as securely as possible.  They can, however, be used for telescopes other than those for which they were designed. 

 

This case also includes wheels and is designed for pulling

    Comments about Jims Mobile (JMI) Telescope Case for 8 Inch Schmidt Cassegrain Telescopes:

    To be perfectly honest, the custom molded foam used by Meade to ship the telescope provided a better and more secure fit than this [$] case. I expected more from JMI and ended up cutting pieces of foam padding from various packages previously received (I knew that foam padding would come in handy) to tighten up the fit. Also - there were not many accessory compartments for additional equipment, so you have to bring a bag or another box anyway. If you don't plan on moving the scope often, the Meade cardboard box will be just fine.
