Comparisons:
Orion 120 long tube: The Orion had color and lots of it… The Burgess 102f6 beats it hands down !!
Orion st80: Again no comparison…… Way to much color in the st80… the Burgess 102f6 beats it hands down!
Orion 102mak: Athough there was no color the image was not as clean… it could be that the mak was not collimated… However the 102f6 had a much wider field of view so it was much easier to find things and performed just as well on the planets.
Skywatcher 8inch dob: Well Sorry but the dob blew it away as it should……Funny I never noticed those diffraction spikes before!!

All in all this is one great scope.... Far Far less color than any other scope in it's price range!!!
