Pelican im2975 for a C11 OTA? new
      #5864489 - 05/16/13 01:00 PM

How well does a C11 fit in a im2975 ? Any experience here? I have a line on an inexpensive, used case.

I don't think so. The reported tube length of the C11 is 787 mm while the interior long dimension of the case is reported to be 736 mm, nearly two inches too short for the OTA. The interior depth of the case is 350 mm and the OTA diameter is 306 mm which does not leave much room for shock absorbing material.
