Daniel, my advice is to stay away from budget RCs like the GSO. Many come to grief trying to collimate those RCs, for chase down errors that they have created. They can produce very nice images but are a challenge. If you want a reflector type scope a Newtonian would be much easier to collimate, and use imho. An 8" f4 or f5 Newt will give you 800 or 1000mm of focal length with pure colour rendition, just my opinion. An 8" newt is pretty cheap as an investment, and they can be found in the classified section here from time to time.
