I find reflectors to give better views dollar for dollar than refractors, simply because unless you're spending big dollars on refractors, you're going to get false color... yes, tight stars in an APO are nice, but stars in a well collimated 10" newtonian are nice too, with NO false color, good contrast, and 10" of light gathering power that a 4" APO can not match...

I love looking through my 4" APO, but I've never seen as much detail in the 4" apo as my old 8" newt... and nothing compared to the 11" SCT..
