Can anyone help me with advice or experience comparing any of the three above versions of the Celestron 11" OTAs with the LX200 12" with the enhanced optics (UHTC). I am only concerned with a comparison of optically quality and sharpness. More specifically, which one will hold very sharp and contrasted views at the higher power limit? There is an exellent article in 'Cloudy Nights Telescope Reviews' comparing the CM1100 vs. the LX200 12", but the latter did not have the UHTC. I need help deciding which scope to buy. Superior optics is the single most important factor to me in my decision. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
