    Default Meade ETX 90 - Need Hard Case Outside Measurements



    Hey,
    I have a Meade ETX 90 I picked up used and it did not come with a case.

    I have been unable to locate a case and have decided to make one.

    Can someone please measure the outside dimensions of their case, (LxWxH), for me?

    Or, if you know where I can get the case that would be great.

    Thanks, Steve.

    You can use anything for a case, many people use Rubbermaid type containers or similar types.
    I prefer HPRC hard cases and there are also Pelican and the various copies of these.
