Of all those, I know the Dobs are big...I wouldn't mind the 16", but I also dont drive an SUV! Unfortunately, if I bought a Dob, I wouldn't be able to do any photography from that. Would a Magellan drive take care of that? Also, I can get good shots on my Celestron, but, I'm now looking for clarity(at higher magnifications)...well, at least greater than the 50x I get with my 20mm in my current scope. Is a Cassegrain better for quality? and Dob better for quantity of light gathered? Im looking around, and Im not making any quick decision.
