Skywatcher explorer 150p or pl

Hi, new to this forum, having done quite a bit of research I am now 90% settled on buying a new 150pl having had a 90mm helios refractor for 20 years its time to move on, my question is, Is the pl inferior in deep space to the p and will I be able to tell the difference, also is the p inferior observing the moon and planets and again will i notice the difference, I understand the physics behind the different focal length but are all views going to be better than my 90mm refractor. My current scope is not quite there when viewing planets which is my reason for changing. Thanks in advance for responses.
