The two scopes are a real nice combination and complement each other rather well (I own an 8i and a CPC1100)

I use the 8i for local star parties because at 35 or so pounds its easy to pick up and travel with The CPC on the other hand would in all honestly never get used if i did not have it pier mounted in my observatory.. its just too heavy for me my age .. to easily lug outside...

Ya did good and for what you paid the purchase was an absolute steal ..
