I am in the process of ordering a 8" scope and I need advice on whether to buy the soft case from Meade or the hard case from JMI.

I plan to use the scope at home and maybe make 6-8 trips with the scope per year. (I have a Subaru Outback).

If I get the soft case, I'm thinking that I could spend the $100 difference on something else, like a JMI Wheeley Bar, as I will store the scope in my garage and it would be great to not have to mount the scope every time I want to use it.

Advice? Thanks.
