I just just completed a 3 week - 4,000 mile road trip around the western states. I took my telescope and it traveled in my 5th wheel trailer the whole time. I took the scope out about 6 times and moved the case around the trailer every couple of days. The scope suffered no damage and the collimation remained spot on even driving over miles of rough dirt roads. I'm very pleased. The case suffered no damage either. To kept any stresses off the scope during travel by releasing the clutches on the alt/alz mount and I placed the scope on it's side rather than in the upright position. I'm changing my rating to 4 stars, although again, I think this is over-priced.
Overall, a very nice case.
Update: The handle came off after using it a couple of times. That part is cheaply made out of nothing but soft plastic. What a shame for such a nice case.
Yes, you have to remove the usual stuff you attach to the tube (triangle, eyepiece, finder scope, TelRad...) to make it fit. You are supposed anyway to remove all of theses for transport, mounting and unmounting (so that you're not going to break them on first move). So I'm not sure why it should be issue that this case "only" contains the tube.
If you also include the CCD, the auto-guider and so on, and unless you're the Hulk, moving all these pieces in one box is not a good idea. Accessories and extras should go in their own protective case.
For the CGEM mount (if you bought the Celestron tube+mount package), I recommend the Pelican 1650 Case (don't use the customizable foam, cut 1/2 an inch from the padding that comes with the mount and it fits perfectly in the case): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002E6R7NG.
A well made case which I considered well worth the price if you like to take the scope on the road with you.
