    Default Eyepiece case



    I just got my pelicanfoam case back. It turned out really nice!!! The process of laying out each hole was pretty easy. You take a picture of each item against a white background. I had to wrap black paper around the silver barrels as they were too shiny to come out correctly.

    I like them, but haven't spent much time because of the weather and time restrictions. Ask me in 6 months and I will have more of an opinion.

    Yes, for my finder scopes. Right now everything gets put in the large tupper ware type boxes. I thought the eyepieces deserved the first case.
