In addition to your 8 or 10 Bintel Dob telescope you will need to collimate ( align ) the optics or mirrors from time to time depending on how much the scope is moved around or bumped etc...
Attached are two accessories I have used over the past couple of years that do the task really well

Orion Cheshire eye piece

Orion laser collimating tool

Both available from Bintel

Cheers
