    Best telescope company?

    Then if you can carry the Dob to your roof it would make a lovely first scope.

    Best telescope company?

    As has been already pointed out these scopes are made in the same factories with much the same designs and only badged differently. The 8 inch Dob is a lovely scope but has a couple of drawbacks. It is large and can be difficult to transport and store. If you give us a bit more information about where you intend to observe from and how you will store your scope we can give better advice,

    Lunt 50 or Lunt 60??? HELP

    I recently chose the Lunt 50 with the pressure tuner. It has performed well, but as mentioned above I had to replace the supplied focuser with the feather touch. I do not think the extra aperture of the 60 would make a great difference, but I have wondered if the extra focal length might be an advantage.
