              I expected more for the money, but the SCT fits and seems to be well protected.

                I bought one and paid to send it back.
                The rims do not seal,the foam is very poor grade and/or quality,and it cannot be either dust or moisture proof.Indeed,from the appearance of the interior design it nearly funnels any dust or liquid into the telescope form.The wheel structure seems likely to pull through the fiberglass and the wheels are not big enough.
                It is much too expensive even if these defects were not present.
                It does appear to be sturdy enough to bear weight which is why I gave it two stars.

                    • Insufficient foam type

                    Best Uses

                      Comments about Jims Mobile (JMI) Telescope Case for Celestron 8 Inch CPC Telescopes:

                      Everything I said before is true, and I still recommend the case. However, the foam under the scope crushed to near-zero thickness (= "no padding") within six weeks. It's a medium density open cell type of foam, and can't bear that kind of static weight. I tore it out, and replaced it with a high density closed-cell material of equal thickness. The new foam doesn't crush, so my scope stays nicely padded. But really, JMI should have put better foam at the bottom to begin with.
