Hi Craig, with live view you will only see the brightest stars. I don't think that you will find a stand alone viewer a web cam type camera will still need a screen ie a laptop.
To see colour or more detail you need to take a short exposure at high iso and with a fast f ratio scope.
Here is a pic of the orion nebula 15sec at iso 6400 (canon 1100d) 120mm f5 achro refractor.
