Got a look at the image, I can see some coma on the bright stars, but can't see any CA and it's nice and sharp! Looks god. It would be interesting to see how god it is compared along side with a WO Zenithstar 80ED II. The Zenithstar 80ED II characteristics are the same, the optics are probably from the same manufacturer.
Nice review. Did you try to make a photo with it. I'm thinking of buying an 80ED, I am still choosing between the Orion/skywatcher 80ED and the Revelation/Moonfish 80ED. The SW uses the FPL-53 glass wish is better than the one Revelation uses (FPL-51). But telescopes that have FPL-51 can be batter than ones that use FPL-53, it depends on how well the (in our case) dublet is made. I really don't know which one to get. I would use it for widefield photography and for photographing comets. Regards Peter
