Large-Wheel Upgrade for Telescope Carrying Cases
JMI Carrying Case models:
Celestron: CASE14OTA (at time of purchase only), CASENEX8S, CASENEX8D, CASENEX11; Meade: CASELX8, CASELX208G, CASELX210G, CASELX212G (old style with small wheels), CASE55OTA
Add large 10″ all-terrain pneumatic wheels to your telescope carrying case to improve travel over rough surfaces. The upgrade can be purchased at the time you purchase the case or at a later date. You will be required to drill four holes in the case if you are attaching an after-purchase upgrade.
The wheels can quickly and easily be removed from the axels on the bracket by pulling two spring clip pins. This will help reduce the overall size of the case for placing it in a small space such as a trunk. The whole assembly (wheels and bracket) can be removed in order to use the smaller standard wheels (on the 8″ through 11″ telescope cases).
When installed, the wheels add 2″ of depth, measuring from the bottom of the case (not including the small standard wheels), and 10-1/2″ to 11-1/2″ of length, measuring from the end of the case where the bracket is attached. If the wheels are removed from the bracket, the above dimensions can be reduced by approximately 4-1/2″ each. Due to the contoured shape of the carrying cases, actual changes in the overall length of the case will be less and will depend on the model.
Please Note: Some of our old cases, for the Celestron NexStar 11 and Meade LX200 10″ telescopes, used metal brackets for mounting the integral wheels. A modified bracket may be necessary, at no charge, to accommodate the shape of these older cases. Call for details.
Shipping weight is approximately 13.8 lbs.
