This clever caddy from Astrozap was designed specifically for the Coronado PST solar telescope. The tall design blocks glare from the sun and off the observer's face. It's made from lightweight .062 aluminum and painted white on the front side to keep cool and black on the back side for better contrast.
Coronado PST Accessory Caddy and Eyepiece Holder
The Astrozap Coronado PST Eyepiece Caddy holds three 1.25" eyepieces, the PST lens cap, and the PST diagonal plug. Rubber eyepiece holders prevent the eyepieces from falling out when viewing the Sun at higher altitudes. Approximately 12" tall x 7.5" wide.

- Almost what I expected, needed some mods.
I am using this with the PST and Celestron Heavy Duty Alt Az tripod.
First, although the description said it was white front and black back, mine was all white. One of the product pictures has it black on the back, another picture it is white. This was fixed with black paint.
The part of the tray on the "left," which is meant to hold 3 eyepieces interferes with the slow motion cable, so much so that I got my sheet metal shears out and cut off that bottom eyepiece holder, so now it works better.
The eyepiece holder on the right, as soon as the PST is pointing a bit up, will not hold an eyepiece without the eyepiece hitting the altitude slow motion housing. It does work fine for the cap that goes over the "diagonal" of the PST, so it still can be used for something.
"Out of the box" it was not satisfactory. After the mods, it is.
