I wrote this attached article that was published in Sky & Space in Jan 2006. It will give you a pretty good feel for what sort of things you should look for in scope, mount, camera etc... Obviously all the info on cameras, mounts etc.. are now outdated, but the principles have not changed at all.

trackerau in his post entitled All black holes are not in space...... hit the nail on the head.

Get a good mount and start with short focal length refractors and you will save yourself lots of frustrations and actually enjoy the wonderful journey you are about to embark on.

good luck
