Continue your lifestyle another ten years, and it won't be. Best to start lifting weights NOW!
I have higher standards. I have found Nexstar 8s something of a pain to work with.
In another 10 years, if still active in the hobby, my scopes will be permanently mounted so no issues there. But trust me the 8" is not a heavy bulkly thing to move around at will ... and as previously stated, I am certainly not a strong person. The 14" is a totally different animal. Why have you found the 8se a pain to work with? Details please and don't leave us hanging. I've found it a pleasure to use in all aspects except for the slightly shakey mount, but that is where a little patience comes in.
