I'm considering the 80mm series 6000 APO.
I have a TAK FS 60c now, which is not very good with stars at the edges. Will the APO have sharp stars across the FOV of a STT8300M CCD?
Will there be issues of back-focus?

I had the series 4000 series and had no problems with the sony 2/3 chip in the sxvx h9.I imaging the 6000 has better optics so i dont think it would be an issue.
