Quote:For less than $40 you can make a basic case out of pine boards if you (or a friend) have a few woodworking tools. Not pretty but functional.

Quote:I'm looking for a case for a celestron 150mm F8 1200FL refractor. Something I can travel with in the back of my truck when traveling to dark sites without worrying about the scope too much, and something to keep it safe in the garage. But something that doesn't cost as much as the scope like the JMI cases. I read some post about a TOW missile case being about the perfect size, but my searches of army surplus stores have thus far turned up nothing. Do the padded soft cases feel like they properly secure it, or would some padding in a golf club case work. Just wondering what you guys have done.Also, Has anyone done pick and pluck for their EQ mount heads? I got a Advanced vx and my plano eyepiece case is perfect size, but I worry about it making a mess of the foam after a few months of use. Thanks,Jim
