Hello, I am very close to acheiving my goal in gettign a telescope. I have the 
money for one specific telescope. Its a 6-inch Dobsonian-mounted Newtonian 
reflector. I chose this telescope because I was reading one of the best types 
of books for the beginner astronomer. Its called " Night Watch" by Terence 
Dickinson. He said that it was the closest thing to a perfect telescope and so 
I found that specific telescope for a reasonable price adn I'm just wondering 
what the problems (like if the mount is bad or the mirrors are hard to clean 
and that sort of problems) with that telescope is!?!?! Well, it  would be 
great if you could answer me back! Thank-You! Bub-Bye!
