Asking others for opinions that are subjective will probably lead to your dis-satifaction. Before buying you need to gain experience as to what you like and what is good performance.

We cannot tell if that is a good scope well made or a bunch of junk without examining it for ourselves. The considerations are:

What type of viewing do you like best. The ability to use or transport the scope and the quality of manufacture including optics.

Normally size rules but be sure the optic is of high quality. Also be sure you can transport it easy if you cannot leave it set up.

These two are both probably fast (f:#) scopes but they still are too different to really be compared. The Jaegar`s Objective may be more of a collectible, the scope more transportable, the quality more reliable, the field of view wider but the Newtonian will reveal many more objects at higher magnifications.
Since they are so different, if both are in good shape and you could afford to, you might consider buying both if you feel you have shopped and can find no better for the money.

Good Luck,
