I ment Collimation should NOT be a problem. Real improtant word to have left out. While we're on the subject, you know a good refractor will not need colimation. I usually recommend a refractor for beginners unless they are planning to get a scope 8" or bigger which is the case with you. Some beginners get frustrated because of the collimation thing. The 4.7" Oreion refractro are good and will show you almost as much as an 8". Of course the 10" will be better. Just some food for thought. A 12" Donsonian reflector will be way better than the 10". Maybe think about the refractor now with a view toward even a bigger reflector later. Just a suggestion. The 10" will be great.
