Great to have a young newcommer so welcome to the SGL. I started at 16 when Halley's comet came in 1986 and never looked back. You don't need to spend a fortune, a pair of 10x50 bins would be a good start and lots of 2nd hand items here as well. John.

Hi Brunty - I started with a pair of 10x50 binocs and a planisphere. I also purchased the Sky at Night and Astronomy Now magazines and attempted to follow what I read in the real sky. I recommend that aproach until you positively want a scope - then get the largest aperture within your budget. You may also be interested in the East Mids sub group of SGL which has just started arranging local get togethers at dark sites where you can get advice and sample different type of equipment.

Lots of luck with the hobby :headbang:
