I saw the Meade 7" APO refractor, very nice! Big! The 6" I havn't seen. That's a $5000 Telescope, add the computer drive, S&H, it's over $6000 for a 6" telescope. You can get the 12" SCT for less than that. Are you sure you want the APO refractor. They are great, they foucas real nice. You won't see as many deep sky objects as with a 12". But you probably know that already. I have a Meade, They were very helpfull on the phone. I had a problem with the focuser, they sent me a new one, they also sent me a new dec motor cable when I broke the end off mine.
That's it;
