The answer depends a lot on your budget. There are a lot of alt-az go-to mounts out there. A couple of years ago I bought a new Celestron SLT. It came with a 5.1-in f/5 newtonian OTA. The tripod was rather flimsy and the scope wouldn't go to the zenith due to the tube hitting the mount. I had to do a little ATMing but this little mount will handle my 91mm f/6.7 triplet without too much groaning.
