Case for FS102?

I just received a Tak FS 102 with a Tenba case. Really nice case that holds the OTA with the tube rings nicely, however, it will not hold the OTA with the 2" adapter or the extension tube attached. A little while back someone (James Lacey?) posted something about a case for the FS102. I think that it was the Orion large case...Anyone know if this will hold the OTA with any accessories attached? Also, was this the one that Orion lists for "Large reflectors/refractors" for $56.95?

Thanks!

Hi Doug,
I use the Orion large refractor case for the Tak 4". It is a little too long for the FS-102 but otherwise works great and is roomy. I just stick my scope, with diagonal and EP still attached, complete with Telrad, Dew Heaters and Parallax Tube Rings all attached to the dove tail plate right into the bag. No need to disassemble anything. Very handy. I like it.
