      Hi Frank, I really can't comment a whole lot on the astrophotography
      side. About all I can say is that take a look at images of all
      three with your camera of choice, and then talk to the
      photographers. An astrophotographically inclined friend purchased
      the FLT I had for review - about all I can tell you is that that
      last I knew, he was very happy with it.
