Here are the deals I'm seeing locally.
One is the Orion XT10 $660 NEW in box. He's selling it for $425
Another one is selling same scope...slightly used but still in very good condition for $375
Now today, a new post is up for a Orion XT 8" But it was only used a handful of times. It's $500 new. He's selling it for $450 but...he's including some 2" lens' and a collimator in a hard shell case which i added up to $330 alone! So, that's a $380 savings over this scope if it was new.
Thing is, i have used my old Coulter 8" dob for many years in the past. My head is swimming about what to do. 10" is nice, but....like i said, he's adding some really costly eye piece that are 2" that would increase the FOV.
Please help me decide what's best here. Thanks
