I got this case from Jim's Mobile. It's expensive but perfect for the LS6 and comes with the quick release bracket.

If it's just to keep the scope clean and a little bit protected in the car, see these folks:

But it it's transport by plane, the JMI case is even marginal. I'd ship it in the original box.
