my name is Tyler and very new to astronomy.  Found astronomy.com thru Google go figure right Smile, Wink & Grin.  I can't wait to get outside with my Newtonian and start exploring but only if the weather permits ofcourse.  I could be visiting here frequently if frustration kicks in which it will and to gain knowledge from all of you hopefully.  Best regards

Welcome to the Astronomy.com forums, Tyler.  You may find some of the information on astronomy and amateur astronomy presented in my post entitled Advice for Beginning Amateur Astronomers under General Stargazing helpful.
