Looking for a cat/mount unit

Good day all
After 20 years as a refractorphile I am coming to the end of my ability to do all the crouching, squatting, standing on tiptoe and reaching over things which comes with using an apo on a GEM.  I'm looking for a unit comprising an Altaz mount with attached telescope, aperture 9 inches or more, with ability to piggyback a solar scope, a small apo, whatever, on the back.

Who suggests what setup?
