I would like to get involved with Astronomy but not sure where to start. I would assume going to a group outing would be a good place to start. For someone with minimal experience it is a little daunting to try and figure out equipment, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello.
Although I am not presently a member, I can suddgest that you attend the starr party if possible and the meeting for sure. Usually small the meetings are a great place to introduce and ask all the questions you wish. Be assure that nobody is anything but an equal in this club and willing to help.

Hi.

We are having a Star Party tonight at the Huckabee Nature Center, Wells Lake location tonight..............Come out if you can..............This would be a good start...............We can answer any questions you may have.

The best way to get to the Star Party location would be:

Follow I-540 south from I-40 to the Zero Street exit at Hwy 255.

Turn left on Hwy 255 and travel east aprox. 3 miles, and turn right on Massard Road.

Follow Massard Road south, aprox. 2 miles, and turn left on Wells Lake Road.

Follow Wells Lake Road aprox. 0.5 miles. Go past the Janet Huckabee Nature Center entrances and turn left at the entrance to Wells Lake.

We will be set up on the right of the entrance road parallel, to Wells Lake Road. Can't miss us.
