Telescope recommendations?


I was thinking to acquire a telescope some time in the future.

However, I have no clue about telescopes, nor their differences even less to determine what would be proper to play correctly with my gear.

Nowdays i have an iOptron Skyguiter pro, Pentax K-1, Pentax K-3

I plan to add a guider to the iOptron, as shown in Peter Zelinka video ( )

I my longest lenses are a Sigma 50-500 and Pentax FA*400.

Hence i think that in order to justify acquiring a Telescope it should give me better results than those lenses and also the iOptron Skyguider must be able to handle it.

My main interests are DSO, moon, planets as much as i can but i am not in a position to invest a small fortune on this. This are some shots i did.

Any suggestions / ideas ?
