Hmmm....
I'm currently in Montreal, Canada, this is in the east coast of Canada

Please see this:

Is there too much light pollution in my area to even consider getting a telescope?

Please advise

From my experience, I found the reflecting telescope gives better color.

Well you won't see much in the way of deep space objects by eye and certainly not much in the way of color except on planets and brighter stars from there, but a video astronomy system like the one I described can certainly make it possible to see colorful nebulae, comets, and the like even from heavily light polluted skies; I live on the west coast of Florida under moderately high light pollution and can still pick up a decent amount of deep space objects with my camera system. Visually I can see almost nothing though, except for planets and the moon. Here's a compilation video, you can see how much light I have contend with at the beginning and end of the video:

colour? LOL.
space is mostly black and white.
I showed a friend the moon with my telescope.
and he said "why is it black and white?
do I need a better telescope?"
the moon is just gray dust.
I like the telescope with a mirror.
you get more light (see more stars)
and it is short.
you can find good Free programs on the web
to find stars and planets.
you just need to know the north.
some give you the angle to set the telescope to.
winter is the best time. it stays darker longer.
when the moon is full it makes it a little hard to see the smaller stars.
I am in a city now. it gives me a lot of light bleed.
the light reflects of the sky.
the moon is a grate start.
but its very bright. so look at it last.
so you keep your night vision.
you should find Jupiter next. the moons are grate.
next venues.
you can find them very easily.
venues at sun set or sun rise.
on the horizon.
if saturn is not to far from us.
you can see the rings.
have fun.
dress for very cold!
