I also have a new 127 Mak to go with my 8” dob. I will have a shoot out with these two later when the smoke clears literally. Last night , I had the Mak out and it showed superb views of the moon through the smoke. At 167x with the cheapo 9 mm I was able to sometimes spot the center cratorlet in Plato with hints of two others, this was past the ideal phase for finding Platos cratorlets. The scope easily split the double - double at 100x. The scope came collimated as well as I’m able to tell , it’s good enough for me,. Saturn was fine with the Cassini division visible, Jupiter was low but also looked sharp with festoons and belts and barges visible, I will post a more detailed post on this small , but capable scope.
