Hi. Pretty new to this, and have a basic question. Planning to get my first scope soon, and have decided on an ETX. What exactly is the difference between the ETX-125 EC and the ETX-125 AC Would appreciate any help.

The EC was the original ETX125 as shipped with just the standard controller. If you mean AT , this is how the ETX's are shipped now, complete with Autostar and tripod (but without the basic control).
Your looking at used 125's the older ones have all-plastic arms. These have since been upgraded to have metalwork in them (to check, undo the dec clamp and have a look behind it)
