Show me your eyepiece/accessories case, please.

Recommended Posts

got my maplins large case this morning, in the sale from £35 to £25, really happy with it, ive not been picking the foam out, simply pushing the foam in so the stuff does not just fall to the bottom, again im really happy with it for the money, ive not got expensive ep's like i see on here but i love it none the less and it means i do not have to keep it all in one of my wifes make up boxes any more lol

im about half way done so far so will put a pic up when i finish later on :)

How long does it take to make one jaimo

A couple of weeks... the finishing is what takes the time. Here, check out my latest with the Pleiades, Maple on Bubinga:

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the compliments!

On of these days I'll be offering them up for sale... However the shipping to Europe may be cost prohibitive.

Thanks,

Jaimo!

I got my Maplins case today, my old box just wouldn't fit everything. From unboxing to eyepieces inside, with a pound coin for scale :).

Since this is a eyepiece discussion thread, I just want to make it clear, solar filter must be front mounted ahead of the telescope.

Eyepiece mounted solar filter can crack easily from the sun's heat and is extremely dangerous and should be disposed of immediately.

While Pig's signature isn't clear, I suspect his solar filter is front mounted.

Reading through 25 pages of this thread, genuinely excited by other astronomer's eye piece cases has absolutely confirmed that I am an utter geek. :)

I picked up a Pelistorm im2300 on fleabay a few months ago for £40. I was really impressed by it and decided to get a second one (also from fleabay, £35 no foam). Now a matching pair :)
