If you can afford the Meade, get that. 12" is way better than 8". Unless your looking to just get your feet wet, I wouldn't touch a Bushnell, especially for that price and used. I know a few people that are very happy with the Meade 12" Dob. There are a few bugs in that one also, but at least the optics are good. Don't know about the Bushnell. The Meade, most people change the focuser and get a better finderscope. Other than that and adding a few moer eyepieces, it's supposed to be real nice.
That's it;
BOB SAL
