To be honest I prefer the Bintel GSO dual speed focuser in lieu of the Skywatcher focuser but that’s just personal preference
You can’t go wrong with either brand in 8” or 10” manual operated dob to get you started in the hobby
Welcome and Good luck !!
I will probably head to their store and find out more about the two Bintel scopes. If I can manage to accommodate the 10", I will possibly go with it.
