I have had success with F/4 Newtonians on a good GOTO mount. At the other end of the scale a short focal length lens on a portable tracking mount should give pleasing results when images are stacked. I use 50 to 200mm prime lenses but ive had good results with 18-105mm zoom range.  If you are interested in timelapse, then it would be possible to put long exposure wide angle frames into a movie that includes foreground objects.
