The odd shape, F3 long tube and 50mm finder handle mean it doesn't fit in the usual cases. Anyone found the ideal case?
Mewlon 180 — case?

Where can be found? importer TNR/LSS does not list.

I put mine in a Pelican 1650 case, the case has wheels and is big and bulky but it travels well in the backseat of a club cab f350. It would be ok for airline travel also but you would not be able to carry it on. I used a large kitchen knife to cut the foam to fit the scope.
Arief, I really like that soft side you found, to bad they do not make them anymore.

Received a response from Starbase:
(Yes, the case bag S fits Mewlon-180C perfectly but not Mewlon-180B due to the larger 7x50 finder)

I ordered a PADDED lighting /photography case seemingly from thousands on eBay.
—.75” padded walls
— 30”x 12” tall x 10” wide, OUTSIDE dims
— 25”x 12” x 8” scope dims
— not the cheapest, but the right one, $30 shipped
— delivery not from China after months, but from US depot, I get tomorrow!
