Can anyone recommend a photography-grade mount for my TV127, for under $3000? The total weight of my setup is ~22 lbs. The easier to set up and transport, the better.

A used Losmandy G-11 Gemini 1, a new Gemini with Digital Drive, both would be good and reasonably easy to transport and set up, plus be very stable for the NP127. They have low PE with the newer ones, but the Gemini 2 that is now out for new mounts, is still in a Beta state for the software. Once finished it should be very good.
My $.02 anyway. grin
