Is there much advantage if any in choosing a CC over an RC for spectroscopic work?

Did you ever receive a response to your question? I am curious also before I purchase. Alan Noot in Medina, Minnesota.

I noticed this question now, a year later :).

depends on which spectroscopy you want to do, all range or mainly H-alpha? I am not a specialist, but I do notice that in certain telescopes with correction lenses some scattering gave at wavelengths of <4000 angstom and for example at a broad spectrum and lower than 4000 A the line of the spectrum on the image fanned out (becomes wider). so I think it's best to have as low as possible  'glass' in the beam of light to the CCD-camera, or you must have very good coatings . 

my 2 eurocents.
