Good advice from Brendan.

Overall that would be a good setup. I am not sure how well these scopes hold collimation but if handled carefully I would like to think it would retain collimation. My experience with that is with Tak or RCOS scopes.

I found them to hold their collimation really well. I would drive to my dark site 4 hours and back many times and their collimation was spot on for ages. GSO RC though won't be as well made but there are plenty using them. If you simply take inside and take it outside it should be fine.

There are threads on this site about these scopes. The only other item would be reflections. I believe the scope needs the main baffle flocked.
See Paul Haese's thread about how to do this or PM him as he has a lot of experience with this scope.

Setup right these scopes are awesome. Look at Leo's images in deep sky forum. Fabulous.
