I have the 130 and love it. Anything to gain by owning the 125EDL besides a little longer focal length and probably less weight? (3 LBS?)

The glass is different between the two but whether or not this can be seen visually or through astrophotography I guess I don't know. 

There is only a difference of 65mm focal length.

Just trying figure out if I should get a 125, compare the two and keep one only.

The lead time on these scopes is pretty long and they go out of stock fast. 

Thanks

I have no experience with either, but can tell you you'll not see a difference at the eyepiece that 5 mm would result in.  Seems you'd do well to stand pat with your 5.1-inch AT.
