Hi,

 

I am looking at getting a second telescope and I am unsure as to what to be looking at. I have been at this hobby on and off for a bit over 3 years(due to being busy not lack of interest). My current telescope is an 8 inch dobsonian. The main issue I have with it is portability but I very much like the image it gives. So I am hoping to find something that can be broken down a bit more for portability(weight is less of an issue). I am more interested in visual observing, but would not be apposed to something that would allow branching off into the photography side of things. I am also ok with spending more on a telescope this time around as I enjoy the hobby.

 

Thanks in advance.

I have had many scopes. My favorite is the Celestron Evolution 8.
