Just saw an AP130GT go for $7000 (while I was waiting for my account confirmation from Astromart). It came and went very quickly. The TEC160ED with reducer is good at the price but would need beefier mount.
A late model AP scope reasonably priced usually doesn't last more than a day but TEC140's come up occassionally. There will be more AP130GTs for sale as Roland in the not too distant future is about to start another production run of these.
