Travelling with the CPC 1100
Posted 04 June 2013 - 03:13 PM
I got a CPC1100 that is in my son place in NYC. And I will take it to Brasil, where I live, by airplane, an international flight. The boxes are huge! It is OK with the tripod box. But I want to fit the OTA in a safer, smaller, metal lugage. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance, Fernando

You might want to reconsider.
If you are talking about the original boxes, they were designed for shipping. Part of the reason the boxes are large is so the contents are well protected by the packing materials.
If you transfer the scope to a physically smaller container, there will not be as much packing material and the telescope will not be as well protected.
Perhaps you could find another carrier that would use the original boxes, but ship at a lower cost?

I will think more about the best option.
