Hi, I'm looking to buy my first big telescope. From what I've read in this forum the Celestron 8" SCT is a good scope. My question is to get the standard/computerized or the deluxe model? The computerized one says it eliminates polar alignment. Is polar alignment hard to do and how do you do it? Is it worth spending the extra money for the computerized or the deluxe model? Thanks for any input that you can give me!
