Thanks so much for your replies, emails and private messages -- I really appreciate your thoughts and input.

I think I'm going to go with the STL-11000M. Paul, I'd love to go the STX route, however, I have no idea when they will be released, and, they're a bit out of my price range if the STX-16803's pricing is anything to go by.

The big issues which are swaying my decision:

Internal guide chip;
Internal filter wheel (with provision for external filter wheel capability);
Multi-stage cooling (with water cooling capability);
Well depth;
Proven reliability and proven results;
Resale prospects; and

I've emailed Peter Ward and requested a quote. I guess you could say that I'm just a little bit excited at the prospect of becoming a father, again. :tonguepoke:
