When choosing a case for your telescope, you have three choices, based on the type of telescope you have.
If your telescope looks like this, your telescope uses a German Equatorial Mount (GEM).
You will need 3 cases:
- Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) Case
- Gem Mount Case
- Tripod Case
For smaller Reflector Telescopes and refractor telescopes with
light weight mount and tripod may we suggest our combination soft case
on our Telescope Softcase page !
The Celestron Evo or Nextstar single fork type
If your telescope looks like this, your telescope is a Fork Mounted Telecope.
You will need 2 cases:
- Fork Mounted Scope case or SCT case
- Tripod case
If your telescope looks like this, your telescope is a Truss Dobsonian style telescope.
You will need separate cases for three components:
- The diagonal top cage or top cage
- The truss poles
- The mirror cradle
We do not currently stock these but can create a custom set for your telescope. Use the Contact form to enquire about getting one of our custom case sets.
