Computerized telescopes don't have to cost a lot. The Nexstar SLT series telescope provides hours of fun under the skies. These are portable enough to take anywhere by virtually anyone.
Set up is a snap, using the Celestron SkyAlign routine, the initial star alignment is as simple as 1, 2, 3 - simply aim the scope to three bright stars. The best part is you don't need any knowledge of the night sky.
