If you love nature, and you love a beautiful night sky full of stars, then maybe stargazing is the hobby for you. It can be as simple or complicated as you want, and you can easily do it alone or with a whole group of people!
For those just starting out, you don’t really need any equipment. You can sit in your own back garden in a lawn chair and admire the night sky. You can take a camera and a notebook and photograph and write about what you observe. But you don’t have to. You can just sit there and drink in the beauty around you.
If you want to get a little more complicated, why not try using telescopes? You can get simple ones or even astronomical telescopes depending on how much you want to spend and how serious you are about your hobby. Telescopes are not necessary but they very useful for identifying particular constellations and stars.
If you want to get a better view than you can in your back garden, why not pack up and go camping or visit a national park at night? If necessar,y make sure that you obtain permission to visit the park after hours.
You can also join clubs and informal groups that go stargazing together. This might be a good way for a beginner to get some useful information and meet other people interested in this hobby.
To shop for astronomical telescopes, try Sherwoods Photographic or any store that sells telescopes and other such equipment.
