Hi Alex, I grabbed myself a Williams optics flt-132 which Iím really happy with. Theyíre reasonable priced and I think they are very undervalued for what they can do and the quality its of the build.
I was thinking Tak originally however havenít looked back since grabbing the flt132 and now wouldnít get rid of it for any upgrade.
One to put in the mix for you I think.
Check out any of my images from the last years or two and you can see what it can do in a beginners hands.

.....also itís light enough for an eq6 which is a bonus.
