Smile New Scope Setup for Astrophotography

Hi there, Iíve just joined IceInSpace after purchasing my first telescope, a Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 which I have used it about 3 times - so far Iím super impressed with how easy it is to use.

However, I really want to start taking photos of the moon and particularly deep sky objects. I realise I will have to travel out of the Brisbane suburbs to a dark site and I have purchased the mounts to be able to connect my camera but I donít think the mount that came with the telescope will be suitable. Itís a alt-azimuth which looks to be pretty heavy duty but Iíve read that an equatorial mount is the way to go? Hopefully I havenít purchased the wrong scope and can set up what I have for photography. Happy to take any advice. Thanks.
