I notice you offer a soft sided carrying case for the LX200 12'' that fits the packing into the case. Do you offer something like this for the LX90ACF 10''?

Can one use the box the scope arrives in for transporting in a car? Since this is my first telescope I'm not familiar with how the scope arrives, is it significantly more disassembled? My reasoning is due to the price of the Jim Mobile box that's avaiable for this scope which is $500. Soooo if I need one of these at the get go I will need to downsize to the 8'' scope.

Hi

Sure, you can always the use the original box on any scope and one of my friends does exactly that with her 8" LX90
