I will take the 42" Dob please.   As long as I don't have to transport it anywhere.

A permanent set up in Perthshire or down in the Borders would be nice.   90 mins leasurely drive to a dark sky site, with the 42" waiting patiently for me.

Fat chance - but I can dream, can't I?

I don't think I could fit it in my garage. Would like to see what the views like though.
