    1. get a good book on astronomy.  "Nightwatch" by Terence Dickinson is my 
favorite.  Also "40 Nights to Knowing the Sky" by Fred Schaaf, and 
"Skywatching" by David Levy.  all are available at the public library.  

    2. use binoculars - any pair that you happen to have around the house will 
do for starters.  if you don't already have binoculars and want to get some 
that are good for astronomy, look for a good 10x50 one.  camera stores are a 
good place to buy them.  (the salesperson in dept stores might not be as 
knowledgeable about the quality of the binoculars.)

    3. use sky charts to learn the constellations.  you can download one for 
free from the website of Sky & Telescope (www.skyandtelescope.com) or from the 
PAS website (http://www.pasaz.org/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=76)

    4. view the Astronomy Picture of the Day (www.apod.com) and while you're 
there, browse some past ones too!  each picture has an expert description of 
what you are seeing, and links to further information.

      Question #7:


      What do you suggest to folks who can’t afford or don’t have access to a 
telescope?
