I'm sorry to say that the sales pitch you get when you buy a scope from some dealers, particularly photo shops, are often totally exadurated. You can see galaxies, but not that many. Don't worry though, there is still an awful lot that you can see. Basically anything that is referred to as a Binocular object is going to be easy in your scope and when you get the knack if it you'll be able to see other, dimmer objects too.

Might I suggest that downloading the IFAS Observing challenges would be great help in your first (and many there after) steps in astronomy.
I tried to find the links but cannot??? Not under the IFAS publications as I expected?? Maybe someone could put up the links?
