firstly, I would have to solve tracking for my dobsonian. Then DSLR and all the accessories - I might end without any dinner, at all [emoji3]
A large Dobsinian certainly gives you good bang per buck. It also forces you to learn about space navigation. I am glad you have a healthy attitude to overspending on your hobby! You are certainly getting a good return on your effort at the moment so good luck to you.

I recently bought a Pentax Ks2, which has the same viewer arrangement.
had to google it, wasn't familiar with that model ... nice !!
The rotatable rear panel is a god-send for astrophotography use :smile:

Whether the dead pixel count is due to age (not mine!) or generation of manufacture, my old K10D is truly awful!
just recently gave my K10 away to a "friend" on facebook who lives down in Melbourne ( I'm in Sydney) he didn't have a camera
Still have the K7 and the K5. The K7 doesn't get much use these days, the K5 has a 500mm sigma zoom that hardly ever gets removed
Cant remember if I ever checked for hot pixels on any of the Pentax cameras

The 3 Canon cameras are my main cameras these days
I was kinda shocked to see how many hot pixels my $3500 Canon 5D mk3 has haha
