If you depend on the electronic 'scopes, you will be a long time in learning the sky. But if you have to hunt for an object by moving the 'scope by hand, you'll come away with a much greater knowledge of where the objects are---much more learning. Those computerized telescopes are great, but when you rely on them to find the objects you just never really get to know what's up there.
