At some point I also thought of getting a telescope but then my city residence wouldn't allow me to see much

It depends if you want planetary or deep sky. Planets (+Moon and Sun) are easily visible in cities. Deep sky is another problem.

Here's my best Monterey telescope moon, where wintertime night skies are the clearest, as sea-fog clouds the summers. The "seeing" was extraordinarily still - unusual for this location.

With GH4/2X TC coupled to an Intes-Micro 6" f/10 1500mm Maksutov-Cassegraine scope - a vertical pano. of two frames
