I'm currently using a 90mm F6.7 refractor el cheapo off CL while I'm saving up for something nicer. Been looking toward a 127mm Mak and starting to wonder if they're all about the same quality. Most are Synta right?
Strongly considering the Orion Apex 127 if nothing else because the customer service is supposedly very good.
The SW looks good as well. Should I just buy on price? The Orion is very reasonable at $369.99 for the tube. I have tripod, ep's etc to get started.
It will be used mostly for planetary, nebulae, galaxies. Occasional lunar, no AP
Is there anything that really stands out? I'd like to stay under $500
