looks like you're taking advantage of the strong US dollar! Good job! 8) 8)

Finally brought the FC-125 to Bend and this afternoon I set it up in anticipation of "first light". Like all Takahashis I have owned or used, it is built as solid as a rock and pretty heavy. Cosmetics are different than my FS-152, as is the optical arrangement. I have had the good fortune to own several smaller FCs and each was a great performer. Same with the FS-152. I forgot to pick up a band adapter to allow me to use the NJP so it is riding on the HGM-200. Maybe more mount than it needs but elegant and simple to use.

Well, another scope added to the mix.....next to a Tak FS-152 and Celestron C102F. If the weather cooperates I plan to set up all three for a little comparison on the moon, Jupiter and Saturn.....
