Celestron NexStar 4"-6" OTA Case Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Great case, compact ...
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Got tired of improvising cases every time I wanted to take my scope on vacation. I was not sure what to expect and worried about the case being overpriced. But once I got my scope, eyepieces, diagonal and finder all secured and zipped up it was obvious that buying this case was a good decision. It is much less expensive than some of the other options but safely, quickly and easily secures everything except the tripod for easy transport.
Pros: Great protection, storage for accessories, easy to use, great fit.
Cons: A bit bulky but that is unavoidable.
