I talked about getting a telescope for so long santa ( my Daughter) gave me one for christmas.

i received a Feildvision reflector telescope with a lens aperture of 114mm focal lenght 1000mm light collection 265x tube length 400mm

it came with a ET-7 equatoral mount on alum.tripod

it also came with H20mm eyepiece
and 6X30 site scope.

Are these eyepieces enough? What if any could be added to upgrade.

What do you think about filters?
Is a Barlow Lens a good addition?
I also have a cannon eos 35 mm and an olympus 10X opticial digital can we take decent pictures by adding a camera adapter?

The manuel shows a clock driver available ( right Ascension only) Is this worthwhile? we found it very amazing how fast we objects travel.

Thank you so much for your time. I will thank you everytime I look at the stars.
