    Carolyn, Take a look at telescopes.com. They have a case( #15198). Inside dimensions 22" long, 9" wide, 10" high. It's a bit bigger than you need but room for a little more padding. The bad news is it's $69.95. It's made for a different scope but I think would serve the purpose. Good luck, Bob

    That's not bad at all, thanks for pointing it out to me. Good one! I'd seen cases for a few hundred dollars before, this one is definitely affordable. I'm reading about it now..

    Here's one that looks nice..reading about it now: Meade Hard Case for ETX-80 Telescope - Telescope Accessories at Telescopes

    Then there's this one, that might fit better. The Meade one might not fit my scope, it seems molded for their scopes only. This one is big but fits different scopes. Zhumell Medium Telescope Case - Telescope Accessories at Telescopes

    Carolyn, All that matters is that you get what will work for you. Happy shopping, Bob
