Amateur observational astronomy is the unlimited hobby of learning about the universe and observing it. This Web site contains images and resources about observering skills that are used in amateur observational astronomy.


There are five major types of amateur observing:

Bright Star Observing with your unaided eyes without optical aids
Bright Star Observing with binoculars
Bright Star Observing with telescopes

Each type of observing is based on learning how to use different types of observing equipment. The learning and fun never stops in observational astronomy and each type of observing provides new observing and learning experiences to enjoy.
