I'm planning to observe TSE 2019 July 2 and getting ready to flight.
My dream is to make photos of corona with Tak FSQ-106N.
Now I'm concerned how to transport it.
One of options is to pack it inside cabin / hand luggage;
however I will pay extra money for overweight.
Other option is to pack it into Pelican 1600 and transport as registered baggage -
but I'm worry about optics. Probably somebody of airport staff could throw or broke it?
Has anybody flown with such an expensive optics?
What could you recommend?
