Orion Optics UK market f/11 6 inch & f/8 8 inch Newtonian scopes (equatorially mounted or Dobsonian) and, I believe, will quote for custom focal lengths. Their 10 inch f/6.3 is widely regarded as the best value planetary scope on the planet ... no, it isn't as good as a 10 inch f/20 apochromatic refractor, but it is a lot more affordable and can be mounted on an equatorial mount which is transportable.
