Celestron Padded Carrying Bag for 8” Optical Tube
Carry and protect your 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain or Edge HD optical tubes with the Celestron Padded Carrying Bag. This bag stores an 8” optical tube plus accessories all in an easy grab-and-go carry. It is a must-have accessory for any telescope owner.
Made out of ultra-durable 900 denier polyester, this water-resistant bag can withstand being taken to any dark-sky location. The walls of the bag are lined with a 16mm thick EPE foam sheet to protect your telescope. Inside the case, soft polyester lines the bag and adjustable straps hold the optical tube firmly in place.
On the exterior of the bag is a hidden zipper pocket that can hold eyepieces, filters and other accessories. The pocket is designed with cinching straps to firm it up when in use and to hide when empty.
Two Carry Ways
The Celestron bag has two carry options depending on your needs. For a quick carry, use the pair of sewn-in handles. Or, use the clip-in padded shoulder straps for a hands-free carry.
