    A good atlas or the nice and easy Stellarium ( free download on Stellarium Astronomy Software) is very helpful for identifying objects. I'd wished I had Stellarium when I started the hobby. A real recommendation for the overview or even details, when you are inside the house.
    The Pocket Sky Atlas is a nice and compact atlas for in the field, but as a result of its layout somewhat less versatile for starters than often stated. I heard starters complain about the uneasy dividing in compartments. Sky Safari on the cellphone gives good overviews and detailed views too. Sky Safari will affect your night vision ( even in the night mode) and if you are my age, you will need reading glasses.
    It is never perfect, sigh...

    Better atlases are available, but at higher costs.
