Cliff, so long as you’re going to use it with our AZ-EQ6, go with the 11”

Celestron tubes are typically a lot lighter than Meade, and there’s not a huge amount of difference in size/weight between the 9.25 and 11 (the former has a slower primary and thus longer tube). Also, the Celestron tubes don’t require rings as they have dovetails already fitted. Needless to say, neither of these larger tubes should ride on your Minitower Pro.

An 8” isn’t a huge step up from your 6”, although it would be noticeable.
