I would not recommend buying this if you cannot lift your telescope up while fully assembled. The straps are too long to carry the telescope like a suitcase (I am 6,1 and it still drags on the ground) and too tight to throw over your shoulder comfortably. So putting it in a compact package does not necessarily make it easier to carry, but you get to do it in fewer trips and the scope is safe. I think they should have a shoulder strap and a hand strap. Like they do on most gym bags.
The exterior is tough and durable and the inside is much more forgiving and smooth to the touch, which won't scratch or damage the contained equipment. The interior is also separated into two compartments, with a thick pad incorporated to ensure that the stand and the telescope tube itself don't negatively interact or damage each other. There are also two nylon straps secured with velcro on one end of the case so as to secure the counterbalance weight in place.
The only glaring issue that I have is the fact that it is advertised to comfortably fit the Orion 130ST EQ with these measurements; however, in practice, it is a very tight squeeze. (Not for the tube, but for the tripod.) Everything fits quite well if you're willing to dismantle the entirety of the equatorial mount, tripod, and tube rings, but that's pretty impractical in general and especially in the field. This is particularly great for a standard azimuth mount, but the equatorial mount definitely makes things a little bit of a struggle and you end up having to awkwardly position the mount to get the zipper closed. If you're able to, you'll want to remove the tube ring mounts.
All in all, I would say it is still worth the purchase. It does what it's supposed to do and there's not a lot of high quality options out there to protect your high quality optics to begin with. I've deducted a star for the fit difficulty, despite the advertised compatibility - otherwise, this is an exceptional, clever, and well-made case. No regrets.
Cons: No instructions on where things should go so I had to hunt to find them. Takes far too long to pack up with this bag. Same your money and get a foam padded hard case
Three days later... However, I decided to keep this case for my scope. It is well padded and will serve me well. I will also look for a case for my tripod and counterweights.
Also (not a negative, just a note) I bought this for a smaller scope - the Celestron 127eq. It fits with all of the accessories and has a lot of extra room which makes it kind of awkward to carry when everything falls to one side of the bag. If you have a smaller scope you would probably be better off with a bag that fits it more snugly.
Overall, the construction appears to be good. The bag has handy internal straps to hold down the tripod and mount head to keep them from sliding around.
