Any comments on the optics and use of high end (expensive) eyepieces?
I'm pondering the same now, and also a 14" SCT so I can sit more, but am also researching the break down and weight issue, since I'm be moving it every time I use it.
Regardless, good luck with your scopes. I know it must be torture now to have to wait for them to arrive!

Hi All, I'm the OP and just wanted to say my ship date got move back to Feb 8th. I'm hoping to get it on the 15th so I can have some time to set it up in the house. I don't know if I'll get to first light because I work a week out of town at a time. If I get it on Friday the 15th I will try to get it to the yard at least. Of course the moon is going to be a problem my next week off the the 19-26 of Feb. I will also be working the week of the Messier Marathon. Hopefully I can get most of them in around the 14th. I will keep you all posted.
Looks like my Ship Date got moved from 2-1-13 to 2-24-13.
Hopefully it doesn't get pushed back further. I Want my LightBucket!!!!

I hear more good things than bad about the optical quality of the Orion scopes and these first light reviews are important in helping me make a decision on a telescope.
I just want the most bang for the buck in a goto scope and yet keep it handy and user friendly.
Thanks in advance to all that may reply.

jt I did get my scope today. I got it together and that was all I could do tonight, it was a long week at work. My thought on choosing between the 14 or 16 would be simple, if you have a place to keep the 16 put together than go for it. The 14 is big!!! I would not get the 16 if I had to break it down. I can only move the base by myself a few inches at a time. Here is a pic next to my 10"
That thing is a mammoth!!!!! Awesome!!!! Nice pic for comparison..
