I just got the C8 last month and haven't gotten around to setting up both the C8 and 6" to make a comparison but I will do that. I've had the 6" since 1986 and know what it can do on the planets and it looks to me that the C8 has a little less contrast even though it has the starbright coating. I'm waiting until Saturn rises a little earlier to make a comparison. It's not as bright as Jupiter and will hold magnification better. Gerry
