JMI Telescope Carrying Case for Meade LX 14" (LX200-GPS)
JMI Carrying Cases include crush-resistant die-cut foam contoured to safely hold your telescope during transport. These attractive and efficiently-designed cases are substantially smaller than the original shipping box and even smaller than most soft cases. They protect your investment while making it easier to move your scope from one location to another.
The case includes six latches (four lockable) for the removable cover (no hinge), two folding handle bars and a steel-reinforced handle. It also has die-cut foam lining with compartments for telescope, eyepieces, finder scope and accessories. The finder scope must be removed from the telescope. Protective covers are provided for the finder and hand control. The focuser does not need to be removed before installation. The top of the case is not hinged. It is removed completely to insert or remove the telescope. The case is designed to be maneuvered like a wheelbarrow with the two retractable handle bars and two 10" pneumatic wheels. Installation of the wheels and support rails is easy and requires two 7/16" wrenches (or two crescent wrenches) and an included 15/16" wrench. This case is compatible with Peterson ergonomic Get-A-Grip handles.
Outside dimensions of the case are approximately 51-1/4" x 28-1/4" x 23-3/4" (with wheels installed and handle bars retracted) and its empty weight is approximately 52.0 lbs (including accessory covers). The top half weighs approximately 14.4 lbs. and the bottom half weighs approximately 37.0 lbs.
