Is the weight of 30 lbs. just for scope or does that include rings finder etc ?

No finder - includes rings and one dovetail.

Same here. The MX+ is an awesome mount and a great match for the SVX152T

I started with the SVX152T on my MyT.

The MyT could handle the weight just fine and overall was ok. I then upgraded to the MX+ and it actually made a big difference in the Tpoint RMS. 

With the MyT it was 9 to 10, with the MX+ it more like 5 to 7. I think the difference is due to the ability to manage the length of the scope. The MX+ is able to control the length (actually the moment arm generated by the length) of the SVX152T.

Mine will be going onto a venerable AP1200. I can’t wait on set it up in early March. Will use a tak 100DL on mount as well. Perhaps with a foa60Q as a finder. It will be fun setting up in central Utah along the Wasatch home front.

Congratulations! That is truly a dreamscope. Reminds me of the AP152 Starfire I used to own. I just saw a video of the work that goes into making these SV telescopes. Impressive. Looking forward to your observing reports.
