The Launch Options for two mission 1 possibilities:

SpaceX Falcon 1e (can't inject directly to Lunar Transfer)

Orbital Pegasus (can't inject directly to Lunar Transfer)

Orbital Minotaur (can't inject directly to Lunar Transfer)

Orbital Minotaur IV (can't inject directly to Lunar Transfer)

Orbital Taurus (can inject directly to Lunar Transfer, but non- standard service)

Piggyback on big booster (might be cheapest, but we'd most likely wind up on a GTO...not quite Lunar Transfer...ad 20% to Lunar Transfer Mass)

Something New: One of our team members is working on a new, pressure-fed liquid fuelled small booster family embodying most of the recommendations from USAF Lt. Col. John R. London III's LEO On The Cheap. If successful, a dedicated launch service could be provided below the minimum capacities (and well below the prices of) the above listed boosters. Such a booster would have no immediate competition. The first step in moving ahead with this booster is figuring out if there is enough of a market for its services for it to be a worthwhile investment.
