Burris vs Celestron?

I think I have narrowed down my choices for a spotting scope.

These are the contenders:

Burriss 20x60/80mm---http://www.opticsplanet.net/burris-20x-60x-80mm-landmark-spotter.html

Celestron 20x60/80---http://www.opticsplanet.net/celestron-ultima-80-straight-spotting-scope.html

Celestron 20x60/100---http://www.opticsplanet.net/celestron-ultima-100-spotting-scope.html

I MIGHT step up and buy the ED version of the Celestron 222x66/100---http://www.opticsplanet.net/celestron-ultima-100ed-spotting-scope.html

However, I am unsure if the ED lenses warrant doubling my outlay, and several reviews I have read, although they are 1-2 years old, mention that the Celestron might have some Quality Control issues.

Thoughts?

Bill

I have Celestron Ultima 80 and love it. I haven't read any comments about quality control issues. A friend at the range has the Burris 20-60 and it doesn't come close to the Celestron in performance.

Thanks Sam!

I can only wish that SOMEONE had a reasonable number of scopes in stock, so that I could actually compare two side by side, but I have yet to find that place!!

Here's one review on the Celestron:

I would without a doubt add - http://www.opticsbestbuy.com/Votex-S...e-SKL-80S.html - Vortex Skyline is a great buy for the money - quality is clear and it without a doubt beats Celestron and Burris
