Orion or Skywatcher 10" dob with goto

Recommended Posts

I'm considering buying either an Orion or Skywatcher 10" dob with goto.  Leaning toward Orion, because I can only find Goto on SW's flextube design, and I don't think I want a flextube.

Been doing some reading on here about these, and found some very positive feedback; however, most of the stuff I've found is at least 5-6 years old.  I'm curious if anyone still has one of these (solid or flex, *with* goto), or has purchased one recently.  If so, I'm curious about your thoughts on:

  • Overall quality
  • Durability (how it's held up over time)
  • Enjoyability
  • Ease of setup/alignment
  • Did you experience the difficulty some users have reported with manual mode?

Thanks in advance!
