Get the ST120. You'll love it. (And remember, the dust cap comes with an aperture stop that takes it down to around 100mm if the CA is getting the best of you- a polarizing filter will also help here.)
A much bigger question is getting a mount you will be happy with. There are lots of alt-az mounts out there. I have the Porta MountII and I have to admit, it is not my favorite. My televue panoramic can run circles around it even without slo-mos as long as its well balanced. I also like my Universal Astronomics Unistar. Eqs are the best if you have the time to mess with them but they are not my first choice of weapon in a duel.

I also use it for my limited AP work. Then, it goes an Atlas.
