    Welcome! There are few adult hobbies that bring child-like excitement like this does. You already got a lot of great advice. Post some of your impressions and session notes, it's great to see how others enjoy this. And invest in your knowledge more than you do in equipment. There are a lot of good books out there, not only to guide your observations and help you find targets, but also to help you understand the significance of what you are seeing. Some of my favorites are The Complete Guide to Stargazing and The Backyard Astronomer's Guide - but the list changes whenever I find something new One of my best purchases has been the pro version of SkySafari - 6th edition still on sale for half price. Great tool for session navigation.

    Welcome Sarah. If you have some good viewing conditions, Andromeda is pretty high up. I've been trying to get a good look, but the city lights are making it tough. Enjoy the new scope!
