If I could lay my hands on an EON 130 for a fair price, will the Quark Chroma do well in it?

It will work pretty much the same as it would in an inexpensive but well made 127mm achromatic doublet would.

 

It's a single, sub-angstrom wavelength of light coming to focus. The more important part of the figure is the longitudinal focus and related spherical abberation in a particular wavelength. With 656nm, red, every scope is pretty much well figured and will do great.

 

Very best,

It will work very nicely.
