I purchased a new Esprit 80ED and am disappointed so far with the stars. I am using a ASI183MM Pro camera and the stars are jagged and there is an uneven halo around the bright stars.
I have tried the same camera setup on my AT60ED and am happy with it.
Here are a couple pics comparing the same stars on the different scopes. The first one is a single 10 second exposure from the Esprit and the second one is a 60 second exposure from the AT60ED.
What could be causing the Esprit stars to look so much worse?
