ES isn't nearly as good as the Skywatcher Esprit.
You also need to figure out which equatorial mount you will buy before selecting a telescope.
A Celestron Advanced VX or Skywatcxher HEQ5 would be OK with an Esprit 80 for example.
If you want the Esprit 120 you need a heavier duty mount such as the Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 or maybe Vixen SXP(if money isn't an issue).

Most people start out with lesser gear and work their way up to the point at which they are content.

I'm a casual/beginner imager but I have no intention of going beyond my Advanced VX and 4" Apo (Televue NP101is) along with a Nikon D5600 DSLR. If youy want to go the whole hog you'll need better gear, but you need to crawl before you can learn to walk.
