Well, I have ordered the 8" DOB from Orion with the intelliscope option. I believe the larger aperature will help in the prob of light pollution. Also note I have read nothing but good reviews on the Orion DOB line including the 8" DOB. I have a good line of plossl ep's and a good barlow. I might invest in a 4mm ep, but I am not sure. None the less I am looking forward to getting the scope.

The Orion people told me the scope is on back order and will not be shipped to me till the end of this month so I can expect to receive it the 1st week of 11/03.....

I can up until I receive the scope change or cancel my order.

I will keep you all updated and thanks for the help....
