I've just bought the SV80S and its optical performance is simply
stunning. I haven't done any AP yet but I can't find any chromatic
aberration at all with this scope even at 160x mag and 30 degrees off
axis on Sirius!! Pefect star test too. Simply awesome and the scope
is less than 15 inches long - dewshield retracted.
My advice is to save up like me and get the SV80S for AP work - you
won't regret it.
