With the Vixen 1.25" adapter and star diagonal, mine measures 1,028mm from stem to stern.  You could lose about 50mm without the diagonal in place. 

Thanks - that's exactly what I needed to know. I can look for a suitable case online now. Probably something like a tripod or lighting-stand case off Amazon with the right measurements.

 

For visual back, I went for this, as it looks very secure and will arrive quickly:

Is it ok to ask further questions here, or should I open a new thread on the CT board (about accessorising etc)?

 

Ant :cool:

Maybe better to start a new thread and we'll consolidate related posts from here, too.

Wow! I still have the second oldest on the list! I wonder if #1 or any of the ones numbered 3 thru 27 will show up?

Please add the 838 I just won on SGW.  Serial # 60281.  Looks to be complete and in pretty good shape.  Should be arriving in about a week.
