Welcome to SGL :)

You could always try the SW Explorer 200p on EQ5 and spend another £92 for the motors if budget is an issue.

£415 will get you the 200p here http://www.firstlightoptics.com/reflectors/skywatcher-explorer-200p-eq5.html

and motors here for £92 http://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/dual-axis-dc-motor-drive-for-eq5.html

A lot of people use this setup and do very well.

Either way you go good luck and look forward to seeing your images in the future :)

Lee, I've opted for this setup. This is a great bundle with good discount. I was considering a 200P PDS with an HEQ5 goto mount, however the cost was too high for my budget. I'm a true beginner so will learn a lot and I know for my immediate needs the EQ5 with a 200P seems a great setup from all the forum posts I've read. I've ordered the dual axis motors and a laser collimator. Let's see where this takes me. A goto upgrade is £300, so I will save up for that.

Thanks for advice everyone I really appreciate it.

Great forums here. Amazed how much I've learnt in just a week or two.

Clear skies all.
