I am no expert on the subject but i am pretty sure you will need an equatorial mount if you want to use your dslr for astro photography, both of the above scopes are Alt/Az and whilst being good for visual, neither are suitable for long exposure photography. Can i suggest the book " Making Every Photon Count" by Steve Richards as something to read before parting with any hard earned cash on what could be an expensive mistake?
I am speaking from experience on the last point.
