Welcome to the Astronomy.com forums.  You may find some of the information presented in my post at http://cs.astronomy.com/asy/observing/f/1/t/49111.aspx useful.

Since the last upgrade previous forum posts will not hot-link.  My post is entitled Advice for Beginning Amateur Astronomers and appears in General Stargazing.

Thank you Sirs! Always love to be in the presence of fellow sky lovers. Unfortunately I live in heavy light pollution -- my 10" scope provides views you can get unaided in rural towns, but it's better than nothing. The good thins about Las Vegas is you can get good skies in an hour, and awesome skies if you're willing to double that!
