I'm sure you realize this but I'll say it anyway since you asked - you will need a guide scope and a means of mounting it along with the main scope - I assume you will be imaging with the Tak Tsa 102.

At the focal length I would not hesitate to recommend the Atlas as when I had mine I was quite happy.
The 3 month pay plan is a great option that Orion has come up with. It tickled my fancy as I await another mount option.
My only problem with my Atlas was the grease and cold, cold temps.
