Which would you keep?

I have quite a dilemma... I have a 10" f/6 Zambuto dob but have just come into a 16" f/5 Intermountain Optics primary which could also be made into a fine dobsonian. I love planets and deep sky. Which would you pick and why? I can only keep one... as well as a C14, and a couple of small refractors, and...

I know... aknowledging you have a problem is the first step in the healing process.

Thanks guys...

I'd have a tough time parting with the Zambuto mirror. Maybe you should part with the C14 unless you have some compelling reason to keep it over the Zambuto.

Maybe I'm just lazy, but I find eyepiece hours
decreases inversely as aperture increases.
I might keep the 10" Zambuto. How does optical
figure of the 16" compare to the C-14?
