upgrade my equipment. Help!

I own a. Skyhawk 1145m which I have been happy with but l am now looking to to spend around £1000.00-1250.00 on my hobby. I'd like to start experimenting with astrophotography but don't even have a camera. Should I get a new scope,mount and cheap DSLR and eyepiece/filter set? If so what? Or keep scope an get a decentish mount and a good DSLR, adaptors,filter wheel and eyepiece /filter set? If so what?

Beginner Query for buying first telescope

Planet altitude question from magazine

Hi,
"The planets" section of the Sky at Night magazine shows the altitude of a planet for a particular date and time. What is this altitude relative to?

Many thanks,
Peter

Skytracker 16 inch goto telescope

Hello guys,

I have been using a Meade 4504 telescope for some time which has been good but not brilliant - and has afforded me some great astronomical views
