OT: Any amateur astronomers?

We have an ancient telescope with a wooden tripod (that's how old it is...) that's completely worthless for looking up at the heavens.

I'm wondering how much money you need to spend on a telescope if you want to look up? How about if you want to take pictures? How big does it need to be? I'd like to get a decent sized one, but not one that mounted on the car or weighed a ton.

Any of you stargazers?
