Re: (meteorobs) Directions for new observers...

     I've just purchased Philip's Color Star Atlas for $19.95 @ Barnes &
Noble's.  It shows each stars' magnitude, all the different sizes of
them & the galaxies.  It's pretty good.  I have a constellation book
around the house, somewhere, so I can take your suggestion of outlining
the constellations.  Thanks for the great post!

Clear skies & happy hunting
