    Comments about Jims Mobile (JMI) Telescope Case for Meade 6 and 8 Inch ETX-LS LightSwitch Telescopes:

    this seems like a good product but one rivit is missing from the aluminum trim piece that goes around where the lids come together. this is somewhat disappointing considering what the product cost.

          EVERYTHING FITS NICE, COULD TUCK SOME EXTRA THINGS ALONG SIDE THE TELESCOPE, I HEAR NO THINGS RATTLE WHEN LIFTING IT! WITH THE WHOLE PACKAGE PACKED, IT IS ON THE HEAVY SIDE, BUT IT ROLLS NICE! EXPENSIVE BUT IT IS WORTH IT TO PROTECT YOUR TELESCOPE!

            A very nice case. No real issues at all, although buyers should be aware that for it to fit properly, a very slight modification on your LS will be necessary. You will need to remove the finder, and install a new "quick release" bracket for it. All parts and tools for this simple modification are included.
