I think Jim is referring to those of us who have Pelican cases for our CG5's!

At least I am following that rule buying new.

So far I'm following that same rule, mostly. It's pretty close with the new Pelican I got for my $300 AT6RC!




When I had a 6"RC I used this case

extremely strong, watertight and only 30bucks. I lined it with inexpensive foam.




Yep, that's the one I have for my AT6RC, only I got mine at the place with the big orange sign rather than the big blue one.

Hmmmm. This rule could be problematic. We recently upgraded our telescopes, and the new scopes in cases don't fit well in the rv. My solution is we are having a rack built that will hold the 12 inch rc and toa-130 without the cases. This essentially turns the roadtrek into our telescope case.

Does this rule mean I have to buy another new scope, worth more than a roadtrek 190?
