Hi All,

Do any of you have insight as to whether a CPC-800 will fit in an NS 8 JMI Hardcase?

Thanks
Dan

Just received the CPC 800/ nexstar 8 case from JMI. The case has been redesigned. The CPC 800 HD, does not fit in the case without cutting some foam for the mirror locking knobs or back handle. There is no cutouts for the finder, diagonal, or hand controller. Just two bags that will hold the "accessories" and will rattle around in the case. The plastic shell do not align easily. The two small wheels, make the whole thing back heavy and Handle on that end keeps hitting the ground.
