Dave Says: "The William Optics FLT132 in it's various incarnations has proven to be a very solid performer and seen in some observatories providing consistent and stunning results.
Any decent APO Triplet at circa 130mm will provide beautiful views but with their legendary build quality no other other telescope comes close..."
