Thank you, John, and Greg, very prompt and helpful replies.
I'm limited to the second-hand market, but the "Agema Telescopes" do look exceptional. I had intended avoiding anything Meade or Celestron, and would rather not get anything with optics made in China or Taiwan. It is a long term goal, and so I guess I'll have to wait till something like a Agema refractor SD 150 F8 OTA, magically appears on the Australian second-hand market. It sounds as though the Tak FS-152SV is over-priced at $9750.
Of course, it may make more sense to purchase a reflector; something like a Ritchey–Chrétien.
Thanks again, Gary
