Worth going from 6"Meade ACF SCT to a 8 or 9.25" Edge HD?

I am considering getting a larger SCT I think 11" would be a bit big, so am looking at either a 8" or 9.25" Edge SCT or perhaps the next cheaper version down. I could use my 6.3 Reducer with that but not the edge I believe.

Getting pretty good results from my old Meade 6" ACF SCT . Both visually and photographically but sometimes a bit more aperture and focal length would be useful. It is already quite heavy with added rings and dovetails.

I have a Minitower Pro and a AZEQ6 I think both would handle it ok. Though I need to get more weights for the Minitower Pro.

Appreciate any thoughts
