I am getting a QHY 163c for EAA, one big letdown for the money your paying no case.

 

I notice ZWO does offer a case you can buy and now come with them as standard. Will the ZWO case fit the QHY 163c or what are people using to store their cameras?

For my ASI1600 I made a case by fitting foam into a small toolbox.  There is sufficient room for the camera with filter wheel and OAG attached and for all the associated equipment (cables, power supply, spare parts).

If you are in the US, look at Harbor Freight for Apache cases.

I don't believe the OP is in the US, but if he is, those are good choices.
