Of the upgrades Meade offered for their ETX-125 models as separate purchases, this was probably the very best one; the overkill ABS carry case.

There are (2) versions of this case; this one, which is brutishly constructed of ABS plastic with large aluminum seams, chrome plated brass latches, and steel hardware. The other was a prettier, but somewhat more fragile wood-and-aluminum bodied variant with chrome plated steel latches. Both featured the same inside dimensions and foam cuts, but the ABS case was hardier, and in my personal opinion, harder to break into; despite it being almost 2 pounds lighter in construction.

As it sits, the foam is stock cut to hold ANY year Meade ETX-125 while mounted on the forks and with the finder in place. There is also room for holding many 1.25" eyepieces and one 2" eyepiece (or barlow), filters, handsets, cables, a finder, ect. If you have the ETX-105, fitment will be pretty close. If you wish to put your 90 in here, you'll need to add extra packings to keep it from moving around.

Weight is exactly 8 pounds 14 ounces.

Physical condition is perfect. Seams line up precisely, latches hold firmly and release on command, foam is complete and unaltered, and the ABS skin has no punctures, deep gashes, or cave-ins. Cosmetics are excellent overall and still attractive, but it is far from mint. The foam is in very excellent condition.

Price doesn't include shipping. Will ship to anyone anywhere.
