Show me your eyepiece/accessories case, please.

Recommended Posts

I've made my eyepiece case myself, using a scrap wood and using my DIY knowledge, I've made a superb case and cost me vitually nothing which I can store many 1.25" and 2" eyepieces, also my Stella cam EX, all power leads and even my tools and scope maintenance kit. Everything I can possbily need for a good nights observing.

I made the slots in the case in such a way that I can slot dust covers at the bottom, so when I no longer need such eyepiece I just the eyepieces into the dust caps, without having to worry about dust getting on the eyepieces, A great idea and makes observing a lot less hassle!!!

Hi! Opticstar has these but they seem to be out of stock for the moment.

Ascension Eyepiece Cases.

At £4 and £5 per bolt case??? They've gotta be kidding!

Some companies give these away free when you buy an EP

Scopes 'n' Skies do three for £5 or nine for £15 here <click>

Flippin' 'eck - they probably cost about 50p to make, if that. :)

Was £10 a pricing error?

- that Jessops link comes up with £1.95 for that foam now...

Mine came in at 95p when bought some a couple of weeks ago. There are two to chose from IIRC which are different sizes and a £1 apart in price, and I was sure I ordered the £1.95 one :)

It is interesting to see how we all have varying ways of laying out our cases.

Its interesting to me that the new black barreled 21mm is a different design to the larger silver barreled one i have. I haven't been able to find anything online about this change... interesting if anyone else has?

Another approach, simple and functional, a £4.99 plastic component box from Maplins. Works perfectly well for regular sized eyepieces.

I like Japanese volcano tops:
