I have purchased the Celestron Advanced VX mount along with a 6″ Newtonian. Buying it as a package is very wise, since for only an extra $100, you get yourself a 150mm f5 reflector that you can start to use for both deep space and planetary imaging. The AVX was chosen because it was the cheapest equatorial tracking mount that could support a weight of up to 30lbs. Although with astrophotography, typically that weight limit should be halved.
