Looking for a second telescope + mount for planetary and lunar viewing & astrophotography.

I’m not really a planetary imager, but it seems to me that SCT’s are probably still the most popular telescope for imaging planets.
The long focal length gives a good scale with the planetary cameras, and you’d probably looking at somewhere between 200mm to 300mm aperture.
And you also need a good mount, but you don’t need to guide so that makes things a bit simpler.
