So I have decided I am going to give myself a telescope for Christmas under the guise of a family gift This will be my first scope since the crappy $30 refractor I had when I was 10. I think I want a reflector as I have always been fascinated with them. I am looking in the $300 range (+/- $50). I know I don’t want a Dobsonean Reflector as I would like to mount my DSLR at some point and I hear it is that much more difficult so that leaves me with a German Equatorial Mount or a fully motorized mount. (My thoughts are to get a GEM that can have a motor added later so I can spend the money up front for better glass but I can be swayed either way). I was looking at the Celestron Astromaster 114 or 130 (even a nexstar 130) or the Orion SpaceProbe 130 but am really open to anything. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated.
