  Good evening
Trying to make an informed decision, weather to invest in a iOptron 14-Inch f/8 Ritchey Chretien Reflecting OTA  or a Meade LX200 16" F/10 ACF UHTC. Both are the maximum size that will fit in my observatory.
  Does anyone have any experience with either one. This will be my " forever scope". I will be doing some imaging and spectral analysis of Red Dwarfs. It will be mounted on my Orion HDX110.
  Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks
Tom

We have been selling the heck out of the C14 on a Software BisQue or AP mount with fast star

f/2 - f/7 - f/10

With QHY Camera

Worth a look if you haven't considered one
