I was very happy with my I-M 715 DX (F/15 Mak) when suddenly a 4"
APO (a Taka FS-102) appeared in my way. I became so satisfied with
it that a started using it much more often than the Mak... So, I
finally decided to sell the FS-102 to move to a larger APO.
Well, now my two options are:
1) Selling the I-M and buying the TMB 152 F/7.9 LW
2) Maintaining the I-M and buying the TMB 130 F/6 LW
I am leaning forward to the option 2), based on the portability of
the 130, which is quite nice (I have a Giro...). However, being the
152 a 6" w/ F/8 ratio, it should be better than the I-M and the
130... visually, at least. And I do essentially visual work.
My problem with the option 1) is that I may end to "need" a more
portable scope to match with the 152...
Is the 152 sooooo different from the 130???
