I need advise as to which of these would better suit my needs. I would consider myself a novice. Two years into it, bought an 80mm Orion ST Refractor and built an 8" reflector (that works great!. Do most of my observing from my backyard in suburban Rochester, NY. I have done some wide field AP with 35mm camera on a barn door mount and really want to get into more with a scope and eventually probably CCD. The 2 scopes I mention seem like they might fit my needs. Other than the 2X cost factor, what factors should I consider?
