Ok, made the decision.... I'm going the DM-6 complete with tripod and a case of Zeiss Abbe II eyepieces!
The DM-6 is so much cheaper than a EQ mount of similar quality due to its simplicity. It can take a 6", and a mount for a 6" like the EM-4000 is four times the price.. it means I can get some more quality aperture alot sooner.
I'll leave a good EQ until I have a Dome setup somewhere. Thanks all for your help.
Daniel - sounds good to me, you'll get some great views now and you can decide to look for a EM200 later if you want, they come up in the classified fairly often, have fun
