  Our carrying cases are manufactured with exact-fit die-cut foam or brackets to hold specific telescopes as securely as possible.  They can, however, be used for telescopes other than those for which they were designed.  This information is provided to help you make a decision about purchasing a case for other telescopes.  For more specific information, see the note under the complete description for each case on the Carrying Case Page in our JMI Online Store.
