I am a keen photographer and I'm wanting to buy my first telescope with the primary purpose being to take some moon photos.  My camera is full frame Canon EOS 6D (DSLR).

I have been recommended the Celestron Nexstar 5SE.  I am keen for help with the following two questions:

- What would be the benefits of 4SE vs 5SE vs 6SE vs 8SE?  The price jumps a lot from 4 to 5 and from 6 to 8.  What would I receive

- Is it easy to use and attach the camera?
- Are there any other options that I should consider?

(I'm not really wanting to go over £1,000 including all required adaptors, tripod, case, etc)

Thanks in advance
