If I was to get another setup ???

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Been thinking about getting another scope (wish I didnt sell the C8 :wink: ) Im torn as to what to get though...a grab and go type affair or similar to what I had before - C8 with HEQ5.

I know they are two completely different scenarios so suppose what im really asking is what is the BEST grab n go scope you can get and what can I expect from it.

Why not go for both? The 8SE is the same tube as a C8 but on a more grab and go mount:


Or something a bit more portable, the 6SE:


The 6SE seems a very popular scope! I have the C6 tube and its fantastic with planets and the moon, its also shown some great views of deeper stuff...

For grab and go, purely MHO, the best you can do is a dob. Great all-rounder, most aperture you can get for the cash, no aligning to do (except of the mirrors of course) and you can fit practically any size into an average car (<10" solid tube, >12": trusses).
