Poor Student looking to get into astrophtotography
Least expensive option I can offer is a Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ, plus a motor drive, 93514. That plus a t-adapter, such as the 93625 and a t-ring, 93419 will get you started.
For a computerized scope with all the basic mount features for long exposure astrophootgraphy, the minimum would be the Celestron Nexstar 4SE or a Meade ETX-90. These offer built-in wedges to give you equtorial tracking. Without that feature, you are limited to short exposures of the moon and planets.
