Your post and requirements are very similar to mine (I think it was my post that you're referring to) and remarkably, I came up with the same two makes of EP as you. The only problem is availability on both.

I'm seriously considering buying a tracking platform (https://www.firstlightoptics.com/equatorial-astronomy-mounts/asterion-ecliptica-light-tracking-platform-for-dobsonian-telescopes.html) and this one's price isn't much more than some of the EPs mentioned. I've decided to get one EP first, then later the platform, being old and poor.....😉




Great minds 😁 thank you as that isn't quite as pricey as I thought they were, I now just have to look more into how they work, I'm assuming they are far better to do photo and video with so certainly something else to think about. 

Like you I'll have to purchase in steps which is why I picked up my Dob second hand for £175 just needed a clean and gave me a little change to use on a decent eyepiece.
