The Astronomy Club of Augusta
The standard advice in astronomy
Our Best Advice
1. Join your local astronomy club first.
The knowledge, experience, observing site and scopes, encouragement and good will of others is valuable.
2. Review and practice naked-eye observing and orientation.
Then graduate to binoculars before telescopes.
We can help you with all this!
3. Develop your particular areas of interest. Help others.
4. If you already have a telescope, learn to use it.
5. Then after several years,
and ONLY if you want a telescope more than (the price of) a bass fishing boat,
Do NOT spend your money until you know what you are doing!
Beginners to experts can benefit
from the abundance of knowledge, skill, and enthusiasm
at our local meetings and star parties.
Astronomy is not a simple sport. Get help to get good.
