Astronomy beginner’s guides


Simple step-by-step astronomy guides

Getting started guides – written by a beginner, without the technical jargon, to help you get started with your new scope.

These guides are written based upon my beginner’s journey with the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ newtonian reflector telescope. Many of the principals or techniques covered apply to other reflector telescopes.
