All the Meade SCT scopes have GOTO. Are you using it manually? The Celestron has manual 9.25" and 11" SCT's, but no 10". Just wondering what scope that was. Good reporting. Take a look for NGC5353/54 my favorite galaxy pair in Canes Venatici, "The Leopard Eyes". You'll pick it up very close to a beautiful bright double star with orange and blue components. It looks like a leopards eyes hiding in glare of the 2 stars. On a clear night you might pick up as many as 3 more galaxies in the same filed of view. Good luck.
That's it;
