AP uses enhanced coatings on the mirrors in their MC scopes.

Good, informed decision, Mike. That's what we're all here for, no?

Truth be told, all other things (besides whether the coating is standard or enhanced) being equal, it's how well you've honed your observing skills that will make the bigger difference.

Enjoy your new mirror. After all, the coating is the mirror - the glass just supports it.
