Optically speaking, without the addition of the so-called UHTC, the two scopes would be virtually identical. If you are planning to use your telescope for primarily visual applications, I doubt you would notice a difference between UHTC and standard Meade coatings. While UHTC does increase the light throughput by about 18%, the green spectrum is increased the least. And green is where your eyes see the most. So UHTC is really only helpful if your are using a CCD device or long exposure photography.

Hope this helps,
