Pros

Kivallo minőségű, strapabíró táska. En EQ6-R mechanikaimhoz válaszoltam, azért nem a gyári beleshez valót, mert ez sokkal kisebb helyen elfér.

Transport bag for complete EQ3 or AZGT mounts (size: 82x32x28 cm)
Pros

An absolute must have item if you need to travel with your equipment. Lots of pockets and fasteners. Good impact damping.

Cons

It has horribly poor slide buckles. One of them broke during first usage. I recommend upgrading them with steel before first use.

Summary

If it weren't for the flimsy plastic slide buckles, this would be a five star review. Hopefully the designer will switch to metal.

Transport bag for HEQ5 steel tripod - compatible with EQ3, EQM-35, EQ5, AZ-EQ5, HEQ5, AZ4, AZ5 steel tripods as well and for refractor OTAs (size: 101x18x18 cm)
Pros

Szállítás, tárolás.

Cons

Az EQ-5 mechanika tetején van egy pöcök (ami a fej Azimuth-csavarjai közé illeszkedik). Kicsit féltem, hogy ez kiszúrhatja a hordtáska bélését. De egy műanyag kupak (3 cm hosszú, némi szivaccsal kibélelve) megoldja a problémát.

Summary

Pontosan illeszkedik bele az EQ-5 láb. Nagyon ötletes a cipzár elrendezése, kiváló minőségű az elkészítés, tartósnak tűnik az anyaga. Vállra akasztva is nagyon kényelmes hordani. Jó ár-érték arányú termék.

Pros

Mind a kitelepülést/szállítást, mind a tárolást nagyon megkönnyíti.

Cons

EQ-5 fejjel használom, a hordtáska pedig a nagyobb HEQ-5-re van méretezve, ezért nem passzentos, de erre a boltban fel is hívták a figyelmemet.

Summary

Néhány szivacsdarabbal elválasztva belefér a mechanika feje mellett az ellensúlyt tartó rúd és a két finommozgató kar, a táska zsebébe pedig az okulártálca is. A varrások, a bélelés, a cipzárak mind nagyon profi munkának tűnnek, remélem az idő próbáját is kiállják. Haboztam, hogy megvegyem-e, mert a távcső és a mechanika sem volt két fillér, de utólag azt mondom, nagyon megérte az árát. Hasonló minőségű bélelt táskát olcsóbban máshol sem igen lehet kapni. A táskát be merem tenni a csomagtartóba anélkül, hogy félteném a fejet, és a terepen is könnyebb egyszerre a sok holmit elvinni az észlelőhelyig, hiszen a táska vállra akasztható.
