Stellarvue SVA130T for me too! I had been wanting to get a nice Apo refractor, and I came close to purchasing a couple relatively low cost ones. Almost got the Stellarvue 125 Access on the classifieds, but I ended up deciding to wait as I didn't have a mount for it at the time. A few weeks later, an Access 102 cam up on the classifieds, and I almost got it to mount on top of my LX90 piggyback style. But again, I told myself if I was going to invest in a good quality Apo, I should take my time and do it right.
So I started saving a little more $$ each month and saved up enough to get a good solid mount, the Orion Atlas Pro AZ-EQ mount. Next came the Apo. I had narrowed it down between the Explore Sci FCD100 127mm, the APM 140 SD Apo, Orion Eon 130, and the SVA130T. I marked off the ES 127 after seeing some things about it I didn't like. Parts of it looked cheaply made, like the dew shield, finder shoe bracket, and cradle. I also marked off the Orion because of some of the specs and cosmetics about it I didn't care for. Then, I was this close -- to getting the APM 140, but no US vendor had them in stock, except for the model with 3.7" focuser. And it was nearly as much as the SVA130T. So, I called the vendor to see if the SV was in stock, and lo and behold, there was one left. I got the one with the 3" Feather Touch focuser, and I am so glad I did. I have no regrets, no thinking back about my decision, no "I should've"s, and no . Very happy and content with my decision, and I'm glad I took my time and did my homework before making a major purchase.
This refractor has given me the sharpest, contrast-iest, most colorful, beautiful views I've ever experienced. I had always overlooked refractors because of their limited apertures, but now I see what all the fuss was about! It's my primary scope now with the LX90-10 serving as my backup.
