I'd Keep The 8" One

I had purchased a 10" LX200 GPS EMC and found it too bulky and heavy and exchanged it for an 8" UHTC.

I am a happier camper now; the ease of moving the scope makes it much more usable (and UHTC makes images slightly sharper).

Remember: A 8" scope in the field shows much more detail than a 16" scope sitting in the garage.
