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
