Have tried these?
I was thinking about an upgrade for the 120mm and I was told by a person I trust a lot that could be worth to give a look at these.
Indeed the Saturn seems quite good on paper.
What do you think?

I've got the Uranus and I'm happy with my purchase. For planetary, I don't think the Saturn will be worth the extra money as you can't utilise the square sensor but if making Lunar or solar mosaics it might be worth it.

The asi120mm is old enough technology, just about any upgrade to a newer sensor may be worth it.  A larger chip would be nicer, too.

 

But remember - better technology is no substitute for seeing, collimation & focus.

One-shot Moon pics at 900mm are indeed a good selling point; beside, am thinking about dipping the toe into deep sky lucky imaging

Saturn sounds like the right purchase for you. Are you considering the mono version or only the colour?

Makes sense for dipping feet into DSOs. Good luck with purchase!
