The mount is what it is all about..best starter mount for the money is a HEQ 5.
Then get a 6 inch Newtonian scope with a coma corrector or even an eight inch with a coma corrector. Don't get carried away going for high magnification...when it gets bigger it gets so fuzzy you will not be pleased...usually you see more at lower mag cause it is clear.
Have a look in the photo section at what Star trek is doing with a six inch Newtonian and a dedicated astro camera.
However the advice above re getting a longer fl lens for your .camera will take you a long way as you can target many objects with a 200 mm f/l and there is nothing better than wide field Milky Way from zip up to 200 mm.
Good luck ..please put up some of your efforts.
