Anyone putting their LX90 10" in the JMI case for it.  I just received one and can't figure out how to get my new scope to fit without deforming at least one corner of the "form fitting" foam.

Make sure you're putting the top and bottom in the correct orientation.  Pictures would help if you need suggestions.

I’ve tried it in both directions and placing it in the case with the mount base on the side with the wheels is the way it fits the best but it’s not perfect.  JMI should not advertise this case as a perfect fit for the LX90 10”.  The LX200 probably fits better with the shape of the fork arms at the bottom.

You may need to do some minor cutting... but again... send some pictures.

I did do some cutting and it’s fine now.  It still in no way looks like it’s custom molded for this scope though.  I’d send pictures if I could figure out how.
