I wish to buy a "light-weight" telescope with high quality optics and am considering the Meade ETX 125EC. I have heard good things about the LX200 series scopes but they are bulky.

Any comment on what is sacrificed in terms of viewing with the ETX scope? Also, are there other brands out there which provide good optics, have a goto capability and are portable?
