    Decent protection, but expensive.

        Comments about JMI Telescopes Telescope Carrying Case:

        Using with a LS-8 ACF. Instructions were barely adequate for conversion from 6" to 8", plus modification for finder. Fortunately it isn't too complex to figure out.

        Fits the LS-8 fine but cutouts for accessories don't fit. No place for the handbox. Cutouts in the lid are useless as anything placed in there would fall out on opening the case (assuming you could keep them in the holes while closing it).

        3.5" LCD mount can be left on the LS-8 while in the case.

        Foam quality could be higher and fit better, considering the price.

        The lock is of the very cheap kind.

        Handle for rolling is removable, but then where do you put it? And then the wheels stick way out.

        There is no better case out there, but there is still room for improvement on this one.
