JMI Hard Case for Celestron 11" or Meade 10" OTA
What is a JMI Carry Case?
JMI Carrying Cases include crush-resistant die-cut foam contoured to safely hold your telescope during transport. The larger cases are manufactured by JMI with 1/4" plastic for super-strong but light-weight support. Most cases include an extra handle on one end with wheels on the opposite end for easily maneuvering the case without lifting the entire weight. These attractive and efficiently-designed cases are substantially smaller than the original shipping box and even smaller than most soft cases. They protect your investment while making it easier to move your scope from one location to another.
About the JMI C11 OTA Hard Case
This case is for the Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) only. It includes two lockable latches, three steel-reinforced handles, a 2" by 30" steel hinge and die-cut foam lining for the telescope optical tube. The JMI C11 OTA Case can be carried by two people using the two handles on either end or pulled using the attached Kryptane?? wheels. When storing your telescope, the diagonal must be detached (from Celestron scopes) and inserted in a foam cutout inside the case. The wheels must be attached to the case by the customer which is easily accomplished in a few seconds with two 7/16" wrenches.
Outside dimensions of the JMI C11 OTA case are approximately 36-1/4" x 21-1/4" x 18-3/8" and its empty weight is approximately 21.4 lbs. The shipping box is approximately 26-1/4" x 19" x 38-1/2" (FedEx Ground dimensional weight is at 116 lbs) and the shipping weight is approximately 30.4 lbs. All values are subject to slight changes.
