I am looking for a 10" dobsonian for watching DSO. I prefer observing DSOs compared to planets and moons. I would like a 10" dobsonian telescope and I searched up for many models.
Among many, which do you recommend? Those I have found are the following, but if you also have other recommendations for me please let me know I really want to get the best telescope out of the budget I use.
1) Orion XT10i:
For this one, I got to know about the push-to model. Compared to the past, this telescope seems to have a higher price around 1000$. Is it worth it? Do you recommend me to buy this model or is there a way of buying a a traditional manual version and making the manual one have a similar effect to the push-to by using Sky-Fi or other equipments?
2) Orion XT10
3) Orion XT10 Plus
Some people say that the XT10 plus is not worth; they recommend to but an Orion XT10 plus and get other accessories instead? What do you say about this?
4) Sky-Watcher S11720
This is a flextube, collapsible if I what I know is right. I heard that the flextube is hard to handle for collimation such as I have to collimate every single time when I go out, so I am quite worried about this. What do you think? Would it be better than the one below: Sky-Watcher Traditional 10" Dob or the other ones that I wrote here?
5) Sky-Watcher Traditional 10" Dob
6) Apertura AD10
I heard someone saying that the Apertura series have more accessories compared to the Sky-Watcher or the Orion. Is this true? Do you recommend this one rather than the other 5 above?
And also, in addition to these 10" dob series that I researched about, please let me know if you have other recommendations or comments on using these telescopes! You could rate in from the most recommended to the least or just give me comments about these telescopes! It will be a great help for me!
Other than the telescope, I read that I should buy a collimator and other equipments. Can somebody recommend me about the basic equipment or additional accessories you recommend me to buy in addition to the telescope?
I've been looking for telescopes during 1 month, and I really want to get the best telescope I could get as soon as possible. Could anyone give me recommendations on the questions I have above kindly?
Thank you so much!
