Keep an eye out for ebay auctions for Manfrotto tripods. They can be picked up for very good prices if you're prepared to wait for the right one. I picked up an 028 tripod recently for £51. It's not the lightest, and is normally considered a Studio tripod, but considering it's normally well over £200 it was worth waiting for.

As for not guiding, as people have said, it's usually good for 5 minute exposures unguided with a TS65 scope - (420mm focal length if you're wondering). With a guidescope fitted he was getting 10 min exposures, no problem.
