Safely transport your telescope with JMI Multi-use Telescope Carrying Case – 8 Inch SCT Telescopes. Made with heavy-duty ABS plastic, this JMI Carrying Case includes crush-resistant die-cut foam contoured to safely hold telescopes during transport. Protects expensive telescope equipment while making it easier to transport from one location to another. Features handles on both ends and wheels for effortless maneuvering and ease of lifting.
Includes four latches (two lockable), three steel-reinforced handles, a 2″ by 26″ steel hinge and die-cut foam lining with compartments for telescope, eyepieces, finder scope and accessories. The finder scope must be removed from the telescope and placed in a foam compartment. A soft bag is included for hand unit protection.

Celestron (Single Fork Arm) NexStar 8 / 8i / 8 SE / 8i SE (Special Edition) (may include optional GPS accessory)
Meade LX50 8″, LX90 8″, LX90-ACF 8″*, LX90GPS 8″, LX100 8″, LX200 8″ (non-GPS), LX200-ACF 8″, LX200GPS 8″, LX200R 8″
Note: When using this case for the Meade LX90, the LNT Module and SmartFinder must be removed and stored in the case. A quick-release bracket is included for instant accurate re-positioning when attaching the LNT Module (this bracket can be used for other finders also).
* Beginning in 2013, Meade modified the LX90 ACF & SC Telescopes so that they could no longer be positioned with the optical tube pointing straight down between the forks. The tube can only be stored in the nose-up position. This makes it more difficult to transport and also makes it incompatible with any JMI Carrying Case. The telescope was re-designed sometime in the fall of 2014. At this time we have no plans to produce a case for the nose-up-storage design.

JMI carrying cases are manufactured with exact-fit die-cut foam to hold the telescope as securely as possible. They can, however, be used for telescopes other than those for which they were designed. This information is provided to help you make a decision about purchasing a case for telescopes not listed in the compatibility section.
The following fork-mounted telescopes should fit inside the CASEX8 with a small amount of space between the fork arms and the foam:
Celestron C8 / C8+
Celestar 8 Deluxe
Fastar 8 (both Original Version with non-tapered Celestar 8 style fork arms and Newer Version with tapered
Ultima 9-1/4″ style fork arms
Meade 2080 / 8″ LX2 through LX10
The optical tube of Celestron and Meade 8″ German Equatorial SCT or Newtonian telescopes (26″ length maximum) will fit inside the CASEX8 loosely with extra padding needed to take up extra space, especially at one or both ends of the optical tube.
