CPC 800 Case new
      #6146783 - 10/19/13 02:17 PM

I'm looking for a case for my CPC 800. I bought the Husky 50 gallon box, but its just too big! I'm looking for something like this, but I little wider. Please post any suggestions.

Here's what I use for my CPC 800. It's a Rubbermaid 45 gallon container, model number 246300DIM. The wheels and handles make the scope realtive easy to move around in the field - sure beats carrying it! I wrap the scope in a 'moving blanket' while transporting it and the case works out very well.

Bought mine for about $20 at Menards a few years ago.

Don

I'm looking for something more compact that will provide a better fit. I don't have too much space to spare, so I'm thinking of returning my Husky box. If anyone knows of a box which will fit the CPC 800 almost perfectly and is fairly cheap, post a link.

If anyone has a JMI case for the CPC 800 they want to get rid of for cheap, just send me a pm with your price and pics.

Looking for a box/cart with a base measure of 16 by 23 inches. Doesn't have to be exact, but close.

Have a Celestron/Pelican case fitted for a Celestar 8, and another with no foam. Either might work. See

Something like this would be perfect providing it fits?

junomike,

Unfortunately that is too small. I'm looking at this. If someone has something similar, tell me how it holds up and if it fits..

Unfortunately that's is too small. It will fit the OTA, but it isn't wide enough for the drive base.
