Hello to Everyone,

I am in the process of having a custom case made for my LX90 8" ACF w/GPS, MFR# 0810-90-03. There was a design change made on this unit sometime back, the forks were shortened so all the cases manufactured for this unit will no longer work, anyway I am looking for dimensional specifications. Does anyone have this information?

 

THANK YOU,

RickScofield

I dont have any dimensions but cant you use the foam liner from the original packing or do you have the junky sprayed hard foam one with the plastic around it???I cant remember what I got with my new scope but the old 10 inch had a nice precut out soft foam padding.

Mark,
Thank you but my LX 90 didn't come in a nice foam lined box but rather the other so it's not usable. The fork arms are where I believe the most changes were made to the new 8" version.
The folks at Sirius are trying to put together a case. I am trying to help them as much as I can. Again thank for your comment.
