Regarding the setting circles. Quite honestly, these are so small as to be virtually useless, and also, unless you put your mount on a permanent pier, you will need to fight with the circles everytime you use the scope. They will just cause you more hassle than enough, and spoil your enjoyment altogether.

Learn how to set your mounts polar axis to the north celestial pole.

You can get your local coordinates from a GPS or Ordnance Map.

Buy yourself a book such as Turn Left At Orion, and learn how to find object by star hopping. A much better way to learn the sky.
