I had a few concerns:
1) Will my telescope fit in the case?
2) Will Pelican's foam hold my telescope and some accessories firmly?
3) Will it fit in my Jeep in the space I want it in?
4) Are the casters and handles strong enough?
5) Will it be of high quality and also look good?
After taking a few measurements of my scope I blindly took the plunge and ordered the case. If it didn't fit I can find another use for the case. When it arrived via FedEx I opened the box and my case was in mint condition and looked and felt high quality.
The case is large enough for the telescope, but barely. The width and height fit very snug. There is no more space left. If those case dimensions were any smaller, the LX200 will not fit in there. I got lucky on that one.
It took about eight hours and 12 bottles of Abita beer to cut the foam with a kitchen knife. I made a few mistakes but was able to fix them with spray adhesive. I laid the scope on the foam and the foam held firmly
There was not much room left for accessories. I wanted to fit all my LX200 specific accessories in this case but am not going to be able to. I was able to cut out a space for, batteries (I hate wires and cables dangling all over), finder scope, and hand controller. Ill need another box for the rest of the accessories like the balancing weights and sky-fi.
I rolled it around the house to feel the casters and handles and I like them. Good enough for my needs. I did not want the huge tires and handles like the JMI cases have. This was one of the main reasons I went for this case. Because of their design, they do not take any space. The casters are recessed and the handles fold onto the case.
I am happy with my purchase. Here are a few pics.
