OK, so I have the Skywatcher Flextube goto 10". I love my telescope but hate the collapsable formation. It flexes, need shrouds, bad at keeping collimation and collects dust. Also, I want to piggyback it with a smaller scope, but the poles are in the way.
So I was thinking about maybe taking out the primary, spider and focus (maybe upgrade the focuser) and installing them on a solid tube.
