I would like to add that although the kids will want to see the "real live" view through an eyepiece, it's the skies that will determine what you will really see. Looking at the planets through the eyepiece may be rewarding and you will see a lot of detail on Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. However, on the deepsky objects, through an eyepiece all you will see is a faint smudge. If light pollution gets worse and it probably will, using your camera will be a most rewarding accomplishment for the kids and yourself. The camera will collect the photons of the deepsky object you want to see and the stacking of SharpCap will provide much more detail than your naked eye can see. I switch from eyepiece viewing to camera viewing over 5 years ago. I do not own any expensive eyepieces, just a few wide fields from SvBony in case I want to do some planetary viewing, but I have only used them once. I use my cameras 99.9% of the time.
I set up my telescope, a Celestron Nexstar C8, on top of an iOptron ZEQ25 mount, a Meade 6.3 focal reducer corrector, a ZWO EFW (electronic filter wheel) with narrowband filters and then my ASI294MC non-cooled camera. I run the cables from the camera and EFW to a USB 3.0 4 port hub and then run a single USB 3.0 cable to my laptop. I should also add that I use an ASI290MM mini camera as an E-Finder (electronic finder) that shows where my telescope is pointing too. Takes the hassle out of always getting up to look into the finderscope. This camera is also connected to the USB hub. With just one cable, I run it to my laptop, usually inside my SUV where I can capture EAA images in the comfort of heat or AC and listen to SiriusXM or watch TV on my smart phone.
I set up SharpCap 3.2 Pro to handle my stacking. I run Sky Safari 6 Plus on my tablet to help me find objects to view and on my laptop, I have various catalogs in PDF to find specific objects like planetary nebula, galaxies and globular clusters.
I usually start off the night by focusing with a bahtinov mask, and then when switching filters from nebula to galaxies, I can re-focus using my Motofocus attached to the focuser and run that cable in to the car. I have everything I need to do my EAA observing runs and I do not have to leave the comfort of my car. I usually just stack for 5-8 minutes to get the most detail I can, running exposures from 4 seconds to about 30 seconds, depending on the brightness of the object I want to see. With my 294MC camera, I typically run at about 400-450 gain and 2x2 bin.
