Your telescope is fortunately of a type (a refractor) that is ready to go once you take the lens cap off, and mount an eyepiece in it.
The magnification you will get does not matter much if you are looking at stars, but it is the focal length of the scope, 900mm, divided by the focal length of the eyepiece. So for example 900/20 = 45x.
The next step is to obtain a sky chart such as

(adjust this to show the local horizon) and then either print or take the PC outside and match it with the constellations you see.

Some stars are more interesting to look at because they are coloured (Betelgeuse - Alpha Orionis) or actually double stars (Rigel Kent - Alpha Centauri). See

Another way is to identify a Constellation, and then look up Wikipedia for that. You will find info on the resident stars there eg

Can anybody help me to solve proffesor layton puzzle 46 the biggest star


046 The Biggest Star
1. The shape you're trying to make is a five-pointed star. It's easy enough
to form a star by just connecting five points, but you're aiming to make
the biggest start possible.
Look for "the five largest objects in space" and connect them together.
2. The answer for this puzzle requires you to draw your star upside down.
3. Remember that the planet we live on is also floating in space!


046 The Biggest Star
Tree on the horizon acts as a star. Connect the 4 big stars and
tree in a star shape. 6 lines total.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya.
