Hi Folks, I'm setting up a trip where I'll be shipping some of my Astro equipment via airline check-in baggage. Specifically I have a Celestron AVX mount head, counter weight with bar and some accessories. The tripod will be going separately, bubble wrapped and stuffed inside a duffel bag (also checked in). One of my ideas is to buy one of the standard 24" hard cases that many people travel with. These have wheels and a standard telescoping hand bar for easy rolling. I'd be putting the mount head and weight/bar inside with plenty of foam or styrofoam and/or bubble wrap for damage protection from the not so gentle airline baggage handlers. The total weight I'd be carrying would be ~30-40 lbs. I'm aware of airline charges for extra weight. The price spectrum for the hard cases I'm looking at vary from $60-70 for an Amazon Basics model to $600 for the Photographers hard case types. I'm obviously trying to justify the amazon Basics model or something closer in price to that end of the spectrum. Would the cheaper models stand up to the rigors of airline travel? Anyone have any experience with these? I'm worried they'd burst and ruin my equipment. But this may just be my own paranoia. Any ideas/comments?
