This case also holds two pair of eyepieces and red dot finder.

 

Total weight with binos and eps and finder is less than 21 pounds; case is 11 pounds.

These look exactly like the cases sold under the B&W brand here in Germany. I think they are excellent cases at an attractive price. I have two, one with the partitions for my eyepieces and one with partitions I made myself for my iPad, EL’s, lamps and other miscellaneous stuff.

Out of curiosity, how do you transport your tripod for air travel?

Hello,

 

APM 70mm owner here.

 

Found this old thread. Thanks for the info, nice inexpensive case!

I am curious about the containers for the eyepieces. Where do these come from?

Here's a source of the "bolt" type cases:
