There are others that can go into more depth. I have an O II and like
it very much. However, if you could get an Orion for he right price,
decked out with tuner and filters, you'd probably get more bang for
the buck. The O II will be less hardware constrained than the Orion,
but I think there's a lot of life left in the Orion.
