  1. I am going out tonight (if no clouds) for the first time to learn to read the sky. I have a skymap and the naked eye. So can anybody suggest which contellations I should start to learn. And or any other objects. I have seen jupitor but that's all. I can not wait as I have spent 4-6 weeks reading books so that I can be prepared. I really want to stick with this hobby as it seems endless. Cheers Teddy
