If you want spend this much consider the Qhy8 (similar to the SXV-H25C) a better buy IMHO. Or else consider the Qhy2pro (similar to the SXV-H9).
The Orion uses a similar 6MP chip to the Qhy8 and H25 but the Orion chip is interlaced. The Qhy and H25 are porgresive mode chips. From what I have read the Progressive chips are the ones people recommend for Astrophotography. However for the price it is a good buy and adds variety and competition to the market.
