Veloce RH 200 & Camera - Built-to-Spec Hard Resin Case

I have designed a special resin hard case to hold the Veloce RH 200, along with a camera connected to it, such that there's no need to re-adjust
the orthogonality plane due to disconnecting the camera after an imaging session, and reconnecting it for a new imaging session no matter how many days,
or weeks, or months later.

The case was built to spec by a firm I have selected (one that specializes in hard cases designed-to-spec for the Israeli Army), fitting a Pelican Strong Case to the task,
while the actual accurate work of fitting in and building the foam structure is a full morning's work of two specialists, followed by 2 full days and nights in a dry room
to allow all traces of glue to evaporate, leaving the case dry and ready to host the Veloce RH 200 for a safe ride to the field and back.

The case interior support comprises several types of special foams, of varying toughness, each designed and specially cut to spec to fulfill a different task -
from keeping the scope safely and tightly held, through providing a solid rest to the focuser, and on to rendering the camera a soft cushion-foam to rest upon,
such that a minimal amount of vibrations will reach it from the outside.

In addition, the foam structure was built such that there's plenty of space for your hands to reach into the case and safely pick up the scope by its dovetails,
even in the dark, or stow it away back in the case after a night of imaging.

The hard resin case includes 4 press & pull Latches, 3 double-layered, soft-grip handles, 2 padlockable hasps, in-line wheels and a telescoping handle for easy transit (even
as a trolley, as carry-on on a plane, subject to specific airline rules or pre-confirmation), a special valve, flush powerful hinges, lightweight strong resin.

It is watertight and guaranteed For Life.

I can have any number of cases prepared to spec, for Euro 495 each, excluding insured door-to-door shipment (UPS / Fedex) (
