    The case itself is strong but I don't particularly like the weak hinges on it. I think that precut foam should be included instead of having to use the foam included with the scope. The construction does not justify the cost. Another idea might be to add straps for the tripod or another method of carrying the tripod with the case. Overall,its a decent case that could be improved.

        Comments about Jims Mobile (JMI) Telescope Case for Celestron NexStar SE 4/5/6 Inch Telescope:

        When the case arrived, I was a bit surprised by how thin it is. For the price I thought it would be more substantial. However, because the case is so light, it doesn't add much weight to what needs to be toted to a site for stargazing. The packing from the scope, which is required with this case needed a bit of modification for a good fit, but that was easily accomplished with a utility knife. I was even able to create an additional pocket to hold my scope diagonal. When I loaded the case with the packing and the scope, the fit was very snug with nothing moving around inside. I was very pleased with that.

                Well I was a bit disappointed. I do not feel the price of this reflects its quality. I was expecting a much more durable case. I was also hoping for a bit more room to carry some accessories. Sadly I would not recommend this product. It works but you can probably do better on your own with a little creativity and a lot less expense.

                  I had purchased this case for my Celestron 6SE. I was considering maybe purchasing other accessories when I decided I really need to buy something to protect my 6SE. I had been carrying my telescope around in the original box it had been shipped in. Then, there's the dew issue if you leave your cardboard shipping box outdoors while you're viewing the sky. The original foam packing my 6SE was shipped with fit perfectly inside this carry case. I now have a sense of security carrying my 6SE around now, and not worrying about bumping or dropping it. This case does have a sturdy feel to it. For the price, I feel the carrying case should arrive supplied with the proper form fitting foam. But, most people, I am sure, saved their original packing foam after receiving their telescope. This is probably the best carrying case one can find on the market for the SE Telescope series.

                  Customer Q & A

                  Q1: I want to know if once the original foaming is inserted in the case if there's room for the nexstar 6 se, the tripod and the mount?

                  A: The case is only able to fit the optical tube and will not hold the mount or tripod.
