As far as color goes, your not gonna see anything like the pictures you see. Deep Sky objects, you will see no color at all. Jupiters bands may look slightly orange but it will very subtle. Saturn, you may see a color difference between the planet and the rings but again very subtle. The globe may show a slight tan area on one side. Try looking at some double stars to see a little color difference. Gamma Andromeda is a real nice one with an orange star and blue companion. Gamma Leo is a beautiful pair of gold stars. Eta Cassiopeia has one of the redist stars I've seen. Of course Alberio in Cygnes is everyones favotite with the yellow and blue components. I like Gamma Andromeda better. As far as deep sky objects go, with a good 114mm reflector the entire Messier catalog of 110 items is visible although a few will be very tough. Many NGC's are in range and hundreds maybe thousands of double stars. Of course all the planets to. Good Luch with it.
That's it;
