dear /out/

im thinking of starting a hobby as a amateur astronomer. I have always enjoyed space and want to start this up.

anyone on this board an astronomer or do this as a hobby already?
any tips or gear that is cheap/helpful.

I currently live outside Philadelphia so light pollution in my backyard is an issue, but Lancaster has always shown good promise.

You should start with a decent pair of binoculars (I have 7x50s) and a star chart app for your phone, to learn your way around the sky. Then think about getting a telescope.
