Hello, friends! I figured my retirement would be a good time to finally "pull the trigger" and get a decent instrument.....so.....
I am now the proud owner of a new, Celestron CPC Edge HD 8 inch SCT! It is assembled and in my living room, and I will fully educate myself on how to operate it's mysteries before attempting to schlep it to a suitable viewing site.
I will need a container to transport my scope. I could lay out hundreds of dollars for a Pelican case, but I would prefer to spend that kind of green on some quality eyepieces. (more questions on that topic later!)
I see some of you have done wonderful things with either rubbermaid or sterilite storage bins and foam. I was hoping someone out there would have a double-fork 8 inch SCT like mine, and could offer SPECIFICS about which brand, size, and perhaps where to purchase said container.
