Astro Physics Soft-Sided Carrying Case for 6" Eagle Pier - 52" Long

There are two different options for transporting and storing your 6-Inch Folding Eagle Pier (AP-EAGLE6). This is The Longer Case! These attractive, padded-nylon carrying cases are very durable. They provide your Eagle Pier with the protection it needs to look new for many years to come. These lightweight cases have a Velcro grip closure on the handles, as well as loops for attaching a shoulder strap (not included). Handholds are also stitched into both ends of the cases for easy handling.

These cases are solidly constructed in the USA. They are covered with a black colorfast "ballistics material" that is puncture and abrasion resistant. Furthermore, this material is water resistant and fire retardant. Protect your investment with these cases.

The Longer Case (AP-C0052): Those observers who want to grab-and-go quickly will prefer the longer case. This case is well sized to carry the Eagle Pier in its fully extended configuration and with the 8-inch Extension (AP-EAGLE6E8) attached. You can even leave the Control Box Adapter (AP-CBAPT) and Pier Tray Support Bars (AP-TRAYSB and AP-TRAYSB1) attached.

This is the configuration most commonly used for visual observing at Star Parties and Public Outreach Events. Being able to simply unfold the pier when setting up and to fold up the pier when breaking down at the close of the event will mean that you will no longer be the “last man standing" in an open dark field at night while everyone else has packed up and left for the night.
