    Default Good place to get 2" EP bolt cases?



    I need to pick a few large 2" EP bolt cases. Is there a place on-line when you can get them cheap?

    Cheapest I found is HighPoint Scientific for $7 a piece, but then you have to pay shipping on top.

    Agena has several sizes to choose from. Not sure if any of these floats your boat.

    Check ScopeStuff, the 2" is $5.00 ea or 2 for $8.00. I always by 2 at a time and always find the second one comes in useful down the road!!!

    Another possible source is Telescope Warehouse. They have lots of fiddly stuff:

    Another vote for Agena. They have a list of eyepieces and the bolt cases they require.
