    Hi from Quebec

    Welcome to the lounge Gregory from New Brunswick. If you do decide to upgrade remember one thing, a nice big telescope (10-12" or more) is great, they do give nicer and brighter views the bigger you get, but a big telescope sitting in the corner gathering dust because you don't have the time or energy to hall it out and set it up is a waste really. The perfect telescope is an easy grab and go telescope like the 8" dob, it is a nice size, not heavy and easy to move around, and bound to get a lot of use, sure maybe later when you have seen everything the is to see in the 8 and you know the sky more, and really feel like you need bigger, jump to the 16" truss telescope,the 16 will give you four times the light gathering and you will see a ton of more things then with the 8". something to think about Rick M p.s. I have a 12" dob that has gathered dust for well over a year now, bigger dobs get heavy to move around.
