All you guys seam to be very happy about what you see through your scopes, i just dont want to be disapointed and only see a dot in the scope. So is it worth the extra to get the 12" over the 8". I will mostly be using it in my backyard.

Cheers for your help.

As Eric said get the 12" and you,ll never look back then learn the art of mirror collimation............ch eers Kev.
