Hi Michael, they are two very different telescopes you have chosen, it all depends on what you want to see and how and where you will be using your telescope, I would advise coming up to our observatory one Wednesday evening to have a chat and if the weather is clear having a look through different telescopes, buying your first telescope is a minefield so best take your time so as you get something you find easy to use and suits your needs, we are open to the public every Wednesday from 7pm.
