Thanks Glen and Chrys for the quick replies!

I think I've stayed clear of reflectors, and hence started with a refarctor for its ease. Maybe I'm being foolish just focusing on greater focal length (fun pun intended).

8" f/4 newt (800-1000m) or Celestron C6 (1500mm) do sound tempting.

I agree I'd probably get bored with planets, though would keep coming back to them, kind of like the moon. At first feels like little variation, but there's always the endless pursuit of a cleaner image, slightly different phase, etc. I'd like to aim some super long focal length and try some tiling moon pics too.

Will keep thinking, researching and post back here with ideas, more questions, etc.

Thanks again!
