Welcome to CN!
If you have not used telescopes before (most newbies have not), you will have a LOT to learn to really enjoy this amazing telescope. I highly suggest that (if you have not already done so) you join a local astronomy club and look for an experienced owner of an Evolution 8" or similar scope to be your mentor. Have someone from the club teach you how to use and take care of it properly. There is more to learn than most newbies ever imagined, but what you learn makes it SOooo Worthwhile!
You may also want to get a book like Turn Left at Orion or NightWatch to start learning how to find the more significant celestial goodies. A pair of ordinary binoculars would also help in this endeavor.
Please, when the scope arrives, post your "first light" report here about your experience. .They usually are very interesting.
Until then - clear skies!
