I bought a Celestron 21066 Telescope a few years back and haven't had much time to use it.. now that I do.. I am not having much luck mainly because I don't have a clue as to what I am doing..

I have been to the Celestron website, but they don't have any real "practical" advice.. My problem is that I have the parts listed below and not sure which I am supposed to use with which and when.. I really only want to look at the moon.. maybe mars or venus.. it would be really great if I could take some photos of the moon with my Canon Rebel 2000.. nothing to complicated I would think..

I just don't know what the best setup is or if I should get other pieces to do this.. ANY help or advice would be greatly appreciated..

My scope is a Celestron 21066-WOS-A that says it has a diameter of 60mm and a focal length of 900mm and it came with;

a SR4mm lense
a H12.5mm lense

a Barlow 3x tube
a Erecting 1.5x tube

I guess if I just knew what to use with what for looking at the moon and when to use the other stuff.. that would be great.. the trial and error method isn't working so well..
