HP 8566B versus the 70900?

I have worked with the 8566B and the 70000 series spectrum analyzers.  I wonder if the 8566B is superior.  In radio astronomy, the fine structure of a received signal is so much clearer with the 8566B that I put the 70900 on the same antenna and LNA and got a very much cruder reception with the same resolution, video, span, etc.  I am missing something because the self tests all pass in both units.  I think the 8566B is far superior.

What do you guys think?
