My 10-inch LX200GPS measures 35 inches in the position you describe, with the dust cover on. (I actually measured it on a polar wedge, the distance being from the wedge plate to the far end of the optical tube, with the tube pointed directly away from the wedge. That should be the same distance as the one you seek.)
