I've been a "reflector guy" for nearly fifty years but ... uh ... the SV125 checked a number of good boxes for me, in no particular order:
(1) high likelihood of very good optics (poly Strehl > 0.95),
(2) about the biggest "grab and go" visual scope I might handle someday in my dotage (my current lift is 67 lb deadweight to load my superb 10" Newtonian onto its mount),
(3) also good to "grab and go" for a quick look outside at planets and brighter DSOs,
(4) excellent quality glass means essentially no CA while observing visually,
(5) can use minus-violet or deep red cutoff for imaging someday if the bug bites. So far, price and Bortle 6 skies in my backyard have been good bug repellent, though,
(6) large enough aperture for brighter deep sky objects and plenty of resolution for planets under most local seeing conditions,
(7) unlike some other makes, focuser quality and fit-and-finish are first rate,
(8) can be easily transported in my car to remote observing sites (UNLIKE my 10" and 14.5" Newts, which are "transportable" only with difficulty in my small sedan), and
(9) not least, the price ($1,495) was unbeatable for a new 5" ED-type OTA.
Yea, like the last poster, I too have sinned today (grin). This will be my first new-in-the-box telescope.
Happy observing always,
