I recently purchased the Celestron FirstScope 21024 Telescope along with the Celestron Accessories Kit and 50 Things To See With A Small Telescope. I am an adult, who is new to astronomy, and this is my first telescope. So far, according to the book I've seen Europa. I haven't seen anything else yet due to bad weather. It was really simple to set up and I can take it anywhere I go because it is lightweight. Many people ask about sitting the telescope on a tripod. You can't do it with an actual, traditional tripod because there is nothing to screw it to. However, a friend of mine came up with an excellent idea. I bought a portable, adjustable laptop, projector stand. It is the Pyle PLPTS3 (23""-41""). It's perfect. To begin with, I no longer have to twist, turn or bend into uncomfortable positions to look into the scope. I can now view in total comfort. Also I can take the scope anywhere I go, along with the stand, which sets up in less than two minutes and I can put it at whatever height is comfortable for me, whether sitting or standing.
