    Nice job, what did you use to cut the foam?

    I was thinking about getting one of these boxes for my CCD AP stuff but the HF here did not have any.

    It's a pluck foam. You just pull out squares to get the general shape you want.

    What he said. It's really convenient actually, much less of a pain to pluck out the squares in the general shapes than to make cutouts in a solid piece of foam.

    Those cases are such a great bargain. I have one as well. Those new eyepieces look great in there.

    Oh, yes, have to have room to grow the family... There's already a few more on my wish list... I'm going to pick up a second case sometime to store all my budget EPs and my Cheshire for the Newt.

    Here's another pic, have the next spot already reserved... Note the similarities between the empty spot and one of the currently occupied spots.
