New to Astro Photography…. need to choose between a triplet Explore Scientific or Astro-Tech. Does either have an advantage?

I have a Stellarvue 80mm APO triplet which I think is fantastic.  Unfortunately, I have never tried either the Astro-Tech or Explore Scientific.  Taking a quick look at reviews, the Astro-tech might have a slight edge but hard to tell.

Would agree that the Stellarvues are excellent. They are premium priced, but great optics, excellent construction. The latter is just as important for Astro work. I have an 80mm; my friend and my club each have a 100mm; another has a 130mm. All are great scopes. Also great customer service.
