Sony SEL 55-210 or HX60

I was considering which would be the better solution for my video needs:
For high magnification video and photo I use an astro apo telescope with my NEX5 (some examples at fotos at, but on fast moving ducks I miss the auto-focus. I was weighting which would be the best alternative but meanwhile I noticed that the a6000 has a 4x digital zoom on video mode so the 55-210 seems the best solution since I will replace my NEX5 by the a6000. Has anyone the other preference/experience?
Don't really know if the video quality of the 20-30x zoom compact is similar to the one of my NEX5...
