I was in a similar situation. I bought a 10" dob and it was a burden for me to use. Last year I bought a Nexstar 8se on sale at Christmas, and my time spent observing has at least tripled. The GOTO/tracking and seated observing position of the SCT is ergonomically ideal for me.

I think you would love a Nexstar 6se. And as they said, there is a built in upgrade path for the ota, since it shares the same mount and arm as the 8se.
