Hello, I'm watching the moon and jupiter moons since few weeks with my cheap 40mm refractor and my binocular but now I want a serious upgrade. I was looking for a 16 inch Dobsonian but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea for me. I'm living in a small city without too much light pollution but I have a problem, I can't see Jupiter and Saturn from my house and I can't see other interesting things because of street lights. I will need a telescope that I can safely transport in a normal 4 place car with a small chest. Should I buy a smaller Dobsonian or maybe a Schmidt-Cassegrain?
I'm living in this area (As you can see I don't need to ge very far to get a clear sky)
