Greetings,

 

Can anyone recommend a hard case (with wheels preferably) for the Sky-Watcher EQ6-RI?

This is what I use. It's a bit overkill, but better over than under.

I don't know the difference between the mounts, but here's what I did for my EQ6-R Pro.  I took the wheels and dolly handle off the Pelican case to decrease the weight, but I could easily reinstall the handle and wheels to roll it around.

Here's mine using the original packing foam. It doesn't have wheels but my better half got me a small colapsible luggage dolly ($20 I think) to move it around with.
