It's hard to tell, they are all just run of the mill 80mm refractors.  You can't see all that much with an 80mm, so finding much graphic difference won't be easy, but they also don't strain manufacturing capabilities so they should all be good scopes.  Seems like the way they are differentiating doublets of small size is with the exterior, the build-quality of the scopes.
