Help! Please! I'm new to all this and trying to decide which scope to buy. I'm looking into three very different models that are in the same price range, under $500. 1. A Meade 4.5" reflector, 900mm, f/8 with the AUTOSTAR system 2 A skyQuest XT8 8" Dobsonian, 1200mm, f/8, 44.5" long metal tube. 3. A Meade 8" Dobsonian, f/6.
