Orion optics SPX 200 mm vs SPX 250 mm
I am deciding between these two. I will go for 1/10 PV optics upgrade and I already have a focuser for it (JMI EV-2). I just can't make up my mind, which one to buy.
My biggest concern is portability, even though they are the same length (200mm F=6 and 250mm F=4.8), I just can't decide. Will I need a ladder for 250? Because I really need to drive for at least half an hour to get to my "dark" site. So, is there no big difference, or should I go with 200mm?
The scope will be used with EQ6PRO and for all targets, including planets and moon. I just want the best all-round scope. I think that 250 mm will be better than 200 mm. Money is not the issue on this one.
Thanks for input...
