Recently I've been considering getting back to a tracking mount.  I currently own an Orion 10" intelliscope and an Orion 6" StarBlast intelliscope.  at first I was debating whether to go for a Celestron Nexstar 6 or a Celestron Nexstar 8, and I found myself leaning towards the 8, but I wonder if the Skywatcher 10" collapsible goto dob might be even better.  Like the fact that it has a 2" focuser as I have a number of 2" eyepieces.  I have NO interest in imaging , only visual so other views would be helpful.  Thanks for any pros and cons you all could offer.
