I'd suggest starting off on top Richard, unless you want to get a guidescope and guide rings to go with it. You will find this discussion from a few months ago might be enlightening.

Which widefield lens on a budget?

My Canon 17-85mm IS f4/5.6 is up for sale - wouldn't use it for astro, but great for general stuff.
