Which dob. is going to be the easiest to operate and collimate the discovery 8"dob. or the 12.5"dob. I am new at this, and do not want to get discouraged with my new hobby. if the 8" does not perform or is hassle to operate, or is the 10"or 12.5" dob. a bit to much for a beginner?I am not going to be transporting the dob. any where.What accessories would you recommend for these dobs. for planet and space viewing. thank you!
