Sky-Watcher Heritage 90 Virtuoso and a DSLR?

Hi there,

I'm just getting into astronomy and my 5 year old son is really keen on stars and space, so I am looking for a telescope we can both enjoy (albeit with my supervision!). I am also a keen photographer and am looking to get into astrophotography beyond pictures of the Moon using my tripod.

I was looking at buying a Star-Watcher Explorer 130M or Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ MD but I was taken ...
