Being a family man, and having to pack an awful lot of stuff into the car, the smallest scope gets the highest priority. Right now, that’s the 102mm Mak, for sure. But I have my eye on the AT 72ED II, and was wondering, first, does it come with a carrying case? If not, what is a good, well-padded soft case that fits it snugly? This under five pount marvel would compete very well with the Mak 102. Might not have quite as many photons delivered to the eyeball, but should be close, and the gigantic field of view would give the little refractor a clear advantage if I were able to use it at a dark sky site.
