  • Hard plastic telescope case designed to fit Celestron C-14 OTA, CG-14, CGE 1400, CGE PRO 1400 HD, CGEM DX 1400 FASTAR, CGEM DX 1400 HD, CM-1400, EdgeHD 14 OTA
  • JMI Hard Telescope Cases feature die cut foam which withstands more than three times the weight of the competition's.
  • Attractive and efficiently-designed cases are substantially smaller than the original shipping box.
  • The heavy-duty JMI C14 OTA Case weighs a little over 20 lb. empty, and measures 36-1/4" x 21-1/4" x 18-3/8".
  • This case is for the 14" Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) ONLY. A former incarnation of this case accepted the 11" & 9.25" OTA (foam was cut for the 9.25" and you removed more foam if you had one of the larger tube assemblies), but that is not the case anymore. If you have an 11" or 9.25" OTA, you will need to buy the case with foam cut specifically for that telescope.


Jim's Mobile (JMI) - Hard Telescope Case for Celestron14" OTAs

You take pride in your telescope. Jim's Mobile (JMI) takes pride in protecting your telescope! JMI Telescope Carrying Cases include crush-resistant die-cut foam contoured to safely hold your telescope during transport. The larger cases are manufactured by Jim's Mobile with 1/4" plastic for super-strong but light-weight support. Most cases include an extra handle on one end with wheels on the opposite end for easily maneuvering the case without lifting the entire weight. These attractive and efficiently-designed cases are substantially smaller than the original shipping box and even smaller than most soft cases. They protect your investment while making it easier to move your scope from one location to another.

This case is for the 14" Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) ONLY. It includes two lockable latches, three steel-reinforced handles, a 2" by 30" steel hinge and die-cut foam lining for the telescope optical tube. It can be carried by two people using the two handles on either end or pulled using the attached Kryptane® wheels. The finder scope, diagonal and 2" extension must be detached and carried separately. The wheels must be attached to the case by the customer which is easily accomplished in a few seconds with no tools required. A wheel upgrade is available for this case. If you would like larger wheels, let us know at the time of order.

Outside dimensions of the case are approximately 36-1/4" x 21-1/4" x 18-3/8" and its empty weight is approximately 20.2 lb.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Will this JMI case for 14" Celestron OTAs also fit 14" Meade OTAs (that are not on a fork, such as the LX850 14" OTA?). The C14 OTA and LX850 14" OTA seem to be almost identical in size, so I just wanted to confirm if this JMI case did fit the Meade LX850 14" OTA before I submit my order. Thank you.
