This is a very well built case with protective cleats on the bottom and thick padding on all sides. It is the first case I've seen that fits the telescopes it is intended for, while allowing separate compartments for accessories. At the moment, I have an 80 MM refractor in the main compartment, a star diagonal and eyepiece adapters in one side compartment, a middle compartment for eyepieces, a third compartment for a red-dot finder, and finally a white light solar filter in the final compartment. Everything fits in a relatively small, airline friendly compartment. Once again, Stellarvue can do no wrong.
Included are 3 small dividers and 1 large one, that goes the full width of the interior. What none of the descriptions of this bag tell you is that they are all attached via velcro, so the 3 small dividers can be placed wherever you want them. That's a big plus. The bag seems very well made, and the foam is very stiff. Be aware that unlike most foam bags that use more compressible foam, this foam does not allow squeezing things in. The width of 19.5 inches is a little too generous, it's more like 19.25 and yes it matters if like me, you're trying to fit a 19.25 inch telescope inside and it just barely fits without placing too much pressure on the scope. All in all, a great bag and I forgot to mention you can carry this on any airline!
