on the design of the truss tubes. Some break down really quick and easy, but I have seen others that are not as convenient, and when reassembled they require extensive recollimation every time.
It also goes back to what you are going to haul it in, a compact car or a mini van.
I am starting on a 16" that I plan to make as portable and lightweight as possible, but it will be a challenge I'm sure. In the meantime my latest 8" f/6 sure gives some great images!
