Welcome, Angelgirl1. Getting a new telescope is one of the coolest things!

Hope you have a good time with it.

What kind is it, and what are you hoping to look at?

A tether is a long strap that you attach to a spacesuit on one end, and the other end attaches to the space station. It is to make sure you don't drift off into space, because no one can get you back if you do! These folks do not have "rocket packs" to move around in, so the tether is critical. There might be a rocket pack inside the station, but the tether is so much easier to keep them safe.

That celestron 70mm telescope should work very well for you. It has an excellent optical path!

Where is your general location in the world? That will reveal a lot about what you can see in the night sky beyond the moon and planets.
