Thanks for all the info guys, lots of good feedback.
I've looked through a 80mm refractor and feel that it doesn't quite suit what I'm looking for. For quick 10-20minutes views I'm happy to just use one of my binoculars.
What I'm mainly looking for is something that is easy to transport around and can give decent views of solar system objects (dso is a bonus not requirement) without requiring a lengthy cool down time. 30minutes is fine.
It seems to be a toss up between the 127Mak and Nexstar 5se/6se from what i've gathered?
I would still include the C8 in there with either a cat cooler on the standard C8 or active cooling on the C8 Edge.
