My impression is that the Redcat is a touch better optically but both are great scopes.

Interesting. You have 61EDPH with f/4.5 reducer?

Yes - got a couple images up in the DLSR forum.

 

The 61edph and Redcat are both good. The Redcat has slightly better control over chromatic aberration but is more susceptible to tilt. Which one to buy is really a toss up.

Thank you!

I am more inclined towards Sharpstar because of 2 reasons, first is the bigger aperture 61mm vs 51mm, second is focal length closer to 300mm. I would like to replace my Canon 300mm f/4L IS lens with this. 

 

How different is the build quality between two, Red Cat vs 61EDPH?

The Redcat has obviously better fit and finish, but both scopes are capable little astrographs.

 

Depending on exactly what focal length you're after, there is also a larger version of the 61edph called the 76edph.
