Taking some votes here, I see pros/cons to each and cant decide, so what do you think?

I am looking for a scope to add to my 80ED refractor to use as a guidescope for it, as well as viewing, and on occassion, probably a little photography.

I've been agonizing for a month on what to get, and just need to make a decision...someone persuade me...PLEASE!

If imaging is a goal--other than the Moon and planets--get the SCT. It's far more versatile in that regard than the long f/l MCT.
