Would a Zwo Asi 183mc pro cooled be a good fit for my telescope? 10" Skywatcher Dobsonian Collapsible GoTo

A .413 image scale is a tough way to learn AP for a beginner. Maybe look for larger pixels.

Getting a camera to focus with a visual reflector can be a problem.  You might want to try to see if you  can get a DSLR to focus  before you buy an astronomy camera.  You may need a barlow to get focus.

 

With a barlow and a DSLR, I was able to get pictures of the moon with my DOB, but that was  about it.  If your goto DOB keeps objects well centered you may be able to do some planetary imaging.

I have or am able to do some dso eaa with my Canon Rebel Ti3.  I just like to do a little better pictures or videos.  It's alot to learn.  I am in process of building a EQ platform for it, I'm just having trouble figuring out a few dimensions on the bearings for the EQ...  As well as learning to use PIPP, AutoStakkert, RegiStax 6 and Gimp!

The best suggested ISO for T3i astrophotography is 800. You can find the details here:

I suggest you start there and adjust as you see necessary...
