You might try starting at this link for Astronomy Clubs. I searched for this one. There were many others I did not go to.
As far as visual viewing goes. No you can't see all the things that you see in photograph but yes you can. Sorry for the ambiguity.
Jupiter is a marvelous planet in the telescope. Big and Bright and colorful.
Saturn, to a lesser degree the same.
Almost nothing compares to the feeling you get when you first point a telescope at Saturn on a night when you can pump up the power of the eyepiece. The rings and stuff will just blow you away.
Nebulas and Messiers are great viewing experiences on almost any clear night.
Globular Cluster are simply gorgeous.
The trick to better viewing is experience. The longer you look at something in the telescope the more detail you begin to see. Patience, my friend is the key to trully fabulous viewing.
I hope this all helps.
