Like sean i am also 14 years old
and love looking at the night sky.
i'm a beginner but love galaxies.Don't think that they won't like galaxies me personally love them ,just to know the immense distances and sizes involved is amazing.
heres some objects i have viewed and liked,
ngc 253 bright galaxy
m22 very bright glob
double star Albireo quick before it sets
M17 fairly bright neb
m7 good open cluster also m6 butterfly cluster
m8 lagoon nebula
ngc6752 great glob in pavo
m42 orion nebula when it rises
m27 dumbell planetary nebula GREAT
coathanger open star cluster in bino's is great
andromeda galaxy in bino's is cool (have not seen it in telescope so don't know what that is like but i would imagine the field of view would be too small to view the galaxy as a whole
hope you have clear skies for your next night
