We were asked by a customer to build an airline carry-on case for his Astro-Physics 400GTO equatorial mount. Pictured below is the finished product, the SG-1. The case features four latches, a base plate for attaching the mount, recessed carry handle and the ETHAFOAM interior.

This prototype case does not have a provision for the CW shaft or accessories as we were trying to keep it compact. If possible we will offer a mechanism for that in subsequent cases.

We are taking orders for this case and the AP600E GTO. The AP600E GTO (SG-2) case will be larger, more of a portable than airline carry-on due to the size restristions. It will have a provision for the CW shaft and keypad/controller. We will offer casters and a folding handle as accessory items.

If you are interested drop us a line. We have a page setup on our website, see the link near the header of the page for more detailed and optional larger photos of the SG-1.

As always, every ScopeGuard case comes with Opti-Dry from AstroPro Products.

Best Regards,
Don Holcombe
