My Galileoscope is here

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on August 4, 2009

That’s excellent news. Now the problem is that I am so heavily ignorant of astronomy the besides pointing it to the moon, I don’t really know how to use it. Can’t find a celestial body if I had a gun pointed in my head. Anyone has any pointers on how I can get the quick basics online?

    You will need some kind of tripod to be able to point your scope to anything smaller than Moon. Assuming you have one, you can check Stellarrium (click my nick) to see current positions of planets and such.
