If I could afford it,(Bill Gates$$) I'd make sure this book was given to every amateur astronomer as soon as they bought or expressed an interest in a telescope.
"All About Telescopes has been called "the amateur astronomer's bible," our classic 200-page book is a highly-illustrated and easy-to-understand guide. Contents include: Getting Acquainted with the Telescope; Observing the Sky Show; Photography with your Telescope; Mirror Grinding and Testing; Telescopes you can Build; Telescope Mounts; Collimation and Adjustments; Telescope Optics.

I tried star hopping for a few messier objects and galaxys a few night back to an avail. City skies dont help much though.
