        In my opinion hardware differences are insignificant, especially if 
you use the Inrad #352 600 Hz roofing filter in the original 
Orion.  The primary difference is firmware.  Orion can use v1 or v2 
firmware but Orion II can only use v2 firmware.  IMHO v1.373b5 in 
Orion is better than the v2 firmware, but I sold my unit before John 
Henry's latest versions became available.  The v2 display driver is 
much better however.  Hopefully John will eventually take the best 
parts of v1 and v2 and give you the best of both worlds!

        Ten-Tec made a very wise move in bringing John Henry back!
