And my wife thought the EZ touch price was too much.
I don't think I could ever consider the big bucks for my hobby. The purchase of the CGEM had my wife wondering if I'd gone mad (possibly), but I am very happy with its performance.

Now if all of you guys would please just say no to the Gran Turismo when your numbers are up, I might actually score one in a couple years or so....

I don't want to start any rumors. I'll let AP announce that.
What kind of AP scopes will be made, if no 130, would there be 160s or 140s again?

Parents probably just need to put their kids on all the AP waiting list during the baby shower.

I'm surprised to hear what Luke said about the GT. I remember reading somewhere (on ap-ug maybe?) that they were going to keep rolling these out and that the list was going to go a lot faster and further than typical for AP OTAs.
I also noticed that on AP's telescope page it still says they are planning to upgrade the 105's (and they still maintain a Traveler list). I thought the 105 was a non-starter for AP though. Who knows, I guess Roland plays these things close to his chest and they do seem to have come out with a lot of different scopes (140, 130GT) and prototypes (i.e., 305 Mak/Ca and Riccardi-Honders) in the last couple of years. Given the saturated market at this aperture and smaller, I don't see a lot of room for another 4" but there might just be a lot of interest from those lusting for AP.
