I don't think that you will be disappointed with the C9.25 edge.  You made the right decision to downsize.  I also downsized from a 50 pound C14 to a 39 pound Meade f/10 12".  My lower back was also getting sore every time I had to carry it around.  It put up some fantastic views, but I wanted a scope that I would want to use more.

The 1100 is a beast. I made the same decision, more based on the usage that the scope wasn't getting. I sold it to a guy who has it permanently installed

in his own observatory. I'm glad its seeing lots of starlight.

 

I'm scope less at the moment and may bide my time, see what pops up to use on the FTX. I'm going use a pair of high end Kowa binoculars for while.

 

A 210 Mewlon looks interesting.

There will be other telescopes. You know how that goes.  ;)
