I have a nexstar 6se and I love it. I've only had it about a year and it's my first proper telescope. Every opportunity I'm out in the garden both looking through it and attaching my dslr to the back for fainter objects.

I'm noticing I'm getting movement in the longer exposure photos and after a bit of googling I think it's the mount.

So I'm looking to upgrade. I'm thinking something a little future proof but I'm not made of money so decent, reliable, cheaper end but good enough for astrophotography and with the possibility I might continue to add bits and pieces. 

What do I need and how much am I looking? Help thanks in advance.

Since the se 6 is only 7 lbs and only 12 inches long u could use a cg5 goto or a avx goto mount

So the AVX is like the new version of the cg5? Are there any other mounts that people can recommend.  If I'm looking somewhere between £500 & £1000 I want to make sure I'm getting the best I can for the money.

You can try the sky watcher the Eq5 you could also try to HEQ5 you could try the meade Lxd 85 and yes the AVX will work as well

The AVX is Celestron’s version or newer version of the EQ five

      This is a close up of IC 2944, also known as the Running Chicken Nebula or the λ Centauri Nebula, with the Bok Globules visible in the upper third of the frame. IC2944 is an open cluster with an associated emission nebula found in the constellation Centaurus, near the star λ Centauri. This image was exposed using a Cooled and full spectrum astro modded DSLR through a 8" SCT at it's native 2032mm (f10) focal length. The total exposure time was 8 hours and 25 minutes, through a UV/IR filter to capture natural colour data.

      The view of the deep southern part of the Milkyway around the Southern Cross, Crux, and Centaurus region. This image was taken with a Canon 5D mk4 using a Canon L-series 24-105mm Lens set to f4. Image taken from a mountain, a dark(ish) location, down southern part of NSW near Kiama, called Saddleback Mountain.

      NGC 6357 is a nebula about 5500 light years away in the constellation Scorpius near the better known NGC 6334, AKA the "Cat's Paw" or "Bear Paw" nebula. This nebula was also given the name War and Peace Nebula because of its appearance in infrared images, the bright western part resembles a dove and the eastern part looks like a skull. This photo was taken through a 8" SCT at f6.3 (1280mm focal length) and exposed using a full spectrum modded and cooled Canon 40D DSLR.
