Achro Vs Apo

A good decision I think. The other thing to consider is that you don't *have* to limit yourself to just one telescope. You also don't have to stay married to it forever. Compliment the CAT with a refractor. An ES127 triplet will give you a lot of what a TOA130 can do and is very affordable. Or go a little smaller and piggy-back it on the cat. Lots of options.

This again is just opinion but with a $1700 price tag on an achro, I would put that money on a TAK fs102 instead. A nice flourite doublet any day over purple haze running through my brain.
I think Jimi said: " all in my brain". Jus sayin;)

The idea here to get an ES 127mm triplet to compliment your up and comming 12 inch Meade is a very good one .
I use my SKY90 or Istar 127mm f8 achro in the same roll while I am waiting for my M210 to cool .
Good luck mate .
