I just purchased a Meade LX90-ACF 10 Inch f/10 with UHTC to replace my 12 inch dob. This was under advice as I had intended to purchase a 16 inch goto dob.
I also want to look at the sun and was told the Meade was a better option for flexibility in terms of what I wanted to do: planets, astrophotography, look at sun.
It is now in transit and I am nervous that I have made the wrong choice.
I would have loved to see what would have been visible through a 16 inch dob but I deferred to people in the know.
