So our club is setting up a network of EAA'ers to do Zoom outreach for our club, the public, and other clubs. C19 and Light Pollution have proven the value of EAA (at least for our club). I think that even the manufacturers are trying to address this with mounts designed to use cells phone (perhaps the central appliance in our lives today) and even folks doing EAA with their phones. The advances from even just a couple of years ago in affordable systems means that if you have a balcony of some sort you can "do astronomy" even in the city. You want to make astronomy easy for younger folks tie it into the phone. EAA, IMHO, is no longer a revolution but it is the best tool for most folks. Same systems can be used  for visual from a dark site, but most folks live in cities and EAA brings much value as an astronomy tool if you live in the city. Keep safe and keep looking up, no matter where you live.
