I am on the fence. On one hand, I have the red ZenithStar 103 F/6.9, a fantastic telescope with great machining and anodizing too, with renown optics and features. On the other hand, I have the Sky-Watcher Pro ED 100mm Doublet APO, with great accessories, foam lined carrying case, 99% dielectric diagonal, two eyepieces and an 8x50 RACI finder scope.
The price, however is the problem for which there is but one solution, grasshopper: $1198 for the WO Zenithstar 103 apo or $799 for the Sky-Watcher Pro ED 100mm Doublet APO.
I know based on accessories, the Sky Watcher would win hands down with it's pricing vs. the Zenithstar, but oh that great red anodizing and the carry handle and built in guide scope rings.
Which would you choose, given the layout of both scopes and the pricing?
