Astro Custom Eyepiece Case Review

Jul 13 2005 06:44 AM | Rinaldo in Cases

I wanted something that I could easily keep clean. My hand dexterity is limited, so I wanted to ditch my eyepiece caps and bolt-style containers. Doing this would require a case that would prevent the eyepieces from colliding, and keep the glass from rubbing against any parts of the case as well.

It was delivered to me by Tom at Astrofest this year, in its original shipping case (i.e. a cardboard box.) Tom said Markus was going to look into a case for it, but the cost of having one built in Germany and then the cost of shipping it here seemed prohibitive.
