Looked because I was not familiar with the Saturn.
At ToolsPlus the Galaxi is 2350 compared to the Saturn at 2300 at WC.

However, take a look a the legs and specs.
Here are some more on Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/NOVA-Galaxi-DVR-1644-Lathe/dp/B01LWJCKA6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1548282858&sr=8-1&keywords=Nova+Lathes+55214+Galaxi+DVR
Weight of the Saturn is 313, weight of the Galaxi is 526
I’m am pretty sure the different length is due to the fact the Galaxi has the 20” extension. If so this can be removed and used as an outrigger base with about $50 more compared to Novas outrigger about $300.
Of course you do have to see if taxes and shipping are included. When I have purchased from ToolsPlus it is but the sales tax may vary depending on what state you are located in.
