Tenba makes some very nice cases for the transport of computer
These might work for parts of the 1200. I know that one will hold
the 900
mount as one piece quite nicely. We used it to transport the 900 to
Australia two years ago. I think you can find a complete listing
at the
B&H Photo web page.

Have any of you folks who have a 1200 mount found suitable cases
the 1200 head.
I don't really require ATA quality cases, and would prefer to stay
from an ATA type case's weight.and cost.
Something like a Pelican type case woull be ideal, but I don't
know if
they make a case large enough to carry each of the 1200's 2 halfs.

Thanks John, I'll look into this. Personally seeing, and helping
break down a 1200GTO (Roland's), I find the 1200's two pieces
relatively compact, and not really that heavy. A heavy duty ATA flight
case may add a considerable amount of carrying weight though. I think
something like a lighter Poly-plastic Tenba, Pelican,or SKB would be
ideal, and provide sufficient protection for transporting to dark-sky
sites. Mark
