This Is *really* out of date, the newest versions of KSP include a Map to help judge your orbits, the rocket design still works though.
The easiest rocket I can build that'll get you into orbit with enough fuel to spare for orbital maneuvering. I walk you through building, launching, flying and correcting the final orbit.

I suggest looking at this table of orbital speeds, it helps a great deal in astronavigation.

For the people looking for the extra mods in my toolbox take a look at these threads, I didn't use any in the build though, no need.

*WARNING* Since the release of KSP 0.10.1 the atmosphere has been extended up to 68km, so you'll need to aim higher if you want a long term obit now.
