Meade ETX 105 case for ETX 125
      #5677518 - 02/13/13 11:42 AM

Hi all,

Since I've been looking on Meade's online store, they have an ETX 105 case on closeout. Since I'm trying extremely hard to find/make a case for my ETX 125, this might be one good way to start but....would the ETX 125 be too large to fit in the 105 case? I'm kind of curious if I can just cut out some of the foam and it could fit perfectly. But then again, I'm not sure if it's worth it....

I think this case should work with some foam trimming. I think the tube lengths are the same, the mount is the same, it's the tube diameter that is different.

My 125EC case has a cutout length of 19 1/4" for the tube and mount. The total internal case measurement is 23 1/4".

Good Luck,
Stoney
