"Considered as a collector of rare and precious things, the amateur astronomer has a great advantage over amateurs in other fields ... the amateur astronomer has access at all times to the original objects of his study; the masterworks of the heavens belong to him as much as to the great observatories of the world. And there is no privilege like that of being allowed to stand in the presence of the original." --Robert Burnham Jr, Burnham's Celestial Handbook
Quote:Does anyone have suggestions on a reasonably-priced case for the Celestron XLT 127 (or any other C5)?I've considered getting the Orion soft case designed for the 150mm Mak-Cass; while it is slightly oversized, it should work well.http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=cases_and_covers/~pcategory=accessories/~product_id=15197Or I could just buy another soft ST80 case; I've already confirmed that the C5 OTA fits nicely inside it. Low cost is key; I'm not interested in a case that costs half as much as the OTA.
