The AT 130EDT is a fine instrument. If you are an imager and want to get an idea of it's capabilities please navigate to Astrobin.com and do a search for AT130EDT and you will find LOTS of images. Obviously in AP work, the telescope is only part of the equation.
I have had an AT 130 about 4 years now and can attest that it is great value and provides incredible views. For example below is my first attempt at AP, most of the ones you find on AstroBin are far superior to mine though:
I seriously doubt you would be disappointed by the scope. That being said, you have not stated from what I can tell what you will be doing with the scope, whether it is visual of AP work. So that insight may be helpful. If you intend to be doing AP work, what is far more important than the scope is your mount. Also, if you are not experienced in AP, it would be mistake to begin with a 130MM refractor, most here will counsel you to begin with a 80MM triplet.
