Hard Choice: Used TOA-150(non B) vs new TOA-130NFB

Beautiful images! Especially Eta Car as we don't get to see it here up north.
Certainly your observations about the old vs the new "Type B" focuser are a revelation. My own camera is unlikely to tax either but I may not have such a light camera for ever.

I have to say, I bought the TOA130 because I couldn't get the AP130 right away....now I am not sure that I will ever give up the TOA, even when my name comes up on the AP list.

Well, it's here.
Picture is just for show . . . no intention of actually mounting an FSQ106 atop the TOA-150 like this.
Excellent scope. I suspect you will be tickled with its performance.
I have the TOA-150 and I mounted my FSQ-106ED on top of the TOA-150.
