Hi, Atul! I've never owned a Sky Designs myself: can't comment on them in 
particular... But I can say that I find truss-tube dobs a whole lot easier to 
use than solid-tube designs: far more portable, more easily stored, fewer 
problems with tube currents, just as good with not scattering light (assuming 
you have a light shroud that fits well), and lighter, too!

Has anybody owned a Sky Designs dob, who could comment further?
