Have a look at this thread:

hope it helps,

I don't mind paying a bit extra if the quality is there - why skimp on a couple of hundred dollars with a set up worth thousands if you get better images! Would save a lot of time and frustration if it is indeed better than the standard ones. This also seems to have the added bonus of being able to attach bino viewers.
