Oh yeah. Case. I bought an Astro-Tech AT130EDT case for this. The ES127 slips right in with the single extension tube and the focuser racked all the way in. If you turn it out about 1/2 inch it takes up the rest of the slack. The only issue is there is no place for a diagonal or any other accessories. But it will protect it well. Photo accompanies below.
Thanks for mentioning this - I was just about to give that a whirl.
In related news, I just got mine back from ES. While I could achieve focus, it was just not very good.
According to Kent @ ES, the diagonal was way out of collimation. I'm hoping to take a look through it this weekend.
Also, the focuser is really just not that great. After several back-and-forth conversations, the manufacturing process only threads holes for two of the four focuser mechanism attachment screws (where the gears and the knob are). Anyway, the other two are just pressed against something "for collimation" which makes literally no sense to me.
If you go look at the four allen screws holding the gears on the focuser, only two of those are threaded in. The other two have some sort of threadlocker or goo or something, and they are not even all the way in. Go look...
