Now on the flip side of that, if you were to take several pair of old binoculars and a green laser, you could still put on a pretty good show without seeing any of the deep sky objects. Those little green lasers are a really neat pointing aid. It is nice to go away from the old directions such as three fingers north and two east of Arcturus.
Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
