THANK YOU FOR THAT VIDEO! That's exactly the size comparison I needed! They're massive! I think I will be getting a dobsonian, I looked up the price for an EQ6(And I was intimidated :P) Also i think a dobsonian telescope would fit better in my room because disassembly is so easy.
Hello. I am in the middle of deciding what telescope should be my next. Previously i had a 2 inch (I believe) Bresser refractor telescope. I am super in to astronomy, and now I want something big and awesome. I've been looking at the skywatcher explorer 250pds (for which i would seperately buy an equatorial mount, would the eq5 do?) and the skywatcher skyliner 250(which is mounted on a dob) I'm torn between a dobsonian and an equatorial. My biggest concern about a dobsonian would be that I wouldn't be able to stand up, and would have to bring some kind of table to wherever I'm observing from. If any of you would be kind enough to help clear this up for me, I would be very thankful. Best regards
