Question:
We just got a telescope and would like to know how to get starrtred looking at the heavens. What arre some ways to recognize what we are seeing?

I got a new telescope a couple of years ago, so I started reading "Sky and Telescope" magazine. It was a big help!

"Whitney's Star Finder" is a good reference for amatuer astronomers.
