Guide to a vast store of knowledge.

ya, right...

This page has links to several tutorials and primers on subjects related to astronomy. Some how to's including how to polar align an equatorial telescope for tracking the sky, how to align the optics, how astrophotography is performed, (piggybacked, prime focus and eyepiece projection will eventually be covered). Plus, there's some stuff about what we see when we observe deep sky objects. These include a discussion of planetary nebulae, and one on globular clusters. I plan on adding to these as time permits, plus maybe one on what to expect to see when looking at the same object through different telescopes. Have fun, learn, and don't hesitate to email me with any questions you may have.
