Hi guys,

   I wanted to get a soft case for my AP130GT so that it can be stored with its dew shield extended and camera+FW connected. I found a very nice case that is not expensive ($170):

Here's how it looks like with my scope+camera:

I also added a cheap bluetooth thermometer and humidity sensor into the case:

This is so that I can monitor how the scope slowly equilibrates to room temperature after bringing it in from the outside. The reason for doing this how AP recommended how the scope needs to warm up without thermal shocking it (https://www.astro-ph...ns-9-4-2014.pdf)
