Hi, Has anyone had any experience with a Meade 16" Dob. I have an equatorial mount 10" and I thinks it's a pain. THe focuser is sloppy and I have trouble using megallen II. Every time I move the telescope I'm afraid it's going to fall over. I'm thinking of selling it and buying a 16" dob. Is this wise? Should I stick with the equatorial mount or would a dob give me better visuals and far less hassle at moving. I'm not into astrophotography, I just like to view.

Thanks, Adam Manuel
