Takahashi MT-130
I mounted my MT130 on a super polaris mt. Needs extra counterweights. Steady views with Celestron vibration suppression pads. Views of Saturn were magnificent. Highest contrast ever seen in a Newtonian. Super rugged and smooth focuser. All in all, a typical takahashi high quality scope and a terrific value.

For what you pay for, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Takahashi had got a digit wrong somewhere.

This is an absolutely top-class newtonian at an incredibly low cost.

Now those who don't have deep pockets can finally know what it's like to be an AP owner. The Tak 130MT is THAT good.

This is Takahashi’s best-kept secret. It will hold its own with any APO refractor under 102mm that I’ve used in 35 plus years of astronomy. (I would like to say any refractor its size or smaller, but up against an FS-102’s incredible contrast it just lost out by a narrow margin). It’s small for a newt and deceptively simple in appearance, so you have to forgive the poor unsuspecting “experts” who discount it on sight and then look up slack jawed muttering “What Tak is this?” after a look through the finder.
Solidly built, easy to collimate, and optically incredible. I’m going to own this scope for a very long time.
