I have done this in the past and it does work fine until you lose track of the time. Probably a little to restrictive in the long run.
Other than phones, tablets and laptops are basically what are used the most. The Nexus7 is a popular tablet for this and still on my wish list.
Why not the laptop? Any electronic device you use will be exposed to the night air. People have been using them outdoors for years.

thanks beatlejuice, you have a point about the laptop. I guess ill just take it out side and test it out. im kind of new at this ( I have digital setting circles ) the reason im trying this out is my curiousity just to see how well it works. thanks again, donnie
How well will it work? Passably well. It is very important to get the scope as level as you possibly can. If you do that it will get you close to objects. Some will even be in he field of a low power eyepiece. Not all, but some.
