You've made the right decision with the 8" dob! Portable, with good aperture, easily customisable, and you can chuck it on an EQ mount for imaging if you go down that track.
thanks iceman, i chose the 8" because of portability and sick of being let down with cheap telescopes.

I must say im scared of collimating, ive read all the documentation and understand it somewhat (i even bought a cheshire collimating tool), but what im worried is how much it will need collimating and the "star test" how do you do a star test when its getting dark? isnt it hard. I dont have the telescope yet but can you reach the screws while looking throught the EP?
