Well, I have almost narrowed this choice down to these 2 telescopes (the one that comes with the AVX and the OMNI XLT 150).

If you only look at the OTA, I have hard time deciding which way to go:

The AVX telescope has a smaller secondary mirror, 1.25" focuser, and interesting hex-screws in the back for collimation.
The OMNI XLT has a larger secondary mirror, 2" focuser, traditional colliation screws and XLT coatings.

Why should I pick one over the other for primarily visual - only looking at the OTA?
