Starting our suggestions

I just signed up for the website. Though I am very interested and intrigued in the field of astronomy, I am inexperienced. What all do you suggest I read up before I start using the telescope? Is there any guide or tutorial which might be useful in this as well?

Don't know if this will still be helpful or not, since it's been a while since you posted, but the thing that I found most helpful was watching the job que and seeing what others were requesting, and checking out the gallery to see what setitngs others had used. I was able to learn a lot that way, and it was a lot easier than trying to find information generally online and trying to translate it to the settings that I'd need to use on the site.

Hope it's helpful,

Hey I'm also a complete beginner and I'm learning the way mikaselm mentioned. This forum has a lot of very interesting posts by people that you can learn a lot from. Unfortunately I can see the forum isn't very active recently, but it's still a great repository of knowledge :o

Hi Telemaster and welcome.

Things are a bit quiet right now as the telescope is offline. This should change in the not so distant future!
