Actually, I sold my first CG5-GT to CNer Dave in NM for $50, in need of a motor control board.

Does that count?

IMO a Pelican is overkill for a CG5. I've always used a Rubbermaid Action Packer and a foam camping mat for my CG5s. No problem.

That was my point - matching the storage solution to the value of the mount

I get your point about the cost of the Pelican. But the case can be used for my next mount by changing out the pluck foam. It fits the criteria I have as an urban dark site commuting apartment dwelling Manhattanite astronomer.

We all have our own demands and I have been illustrating how the Pelican met mine with it's suitcase grab by the handle design.

It also looks very cool.
