Thanks! This really helps!

You mentioned an equatorial mount. So this is something separate from the telescope itself? Could it be something that we could add on down the road if we just got the telescope now?

With a cheap small scope and a dslr you can take nice pictures of the moon.

For pictures like the one of Andromeda NoRules just posted you need a good motorized tracking mount, no scope needed.

My sub 300 scope (Equatorial mount but no motor):
