A lot of us would like to get started in Astronomy but aren't sure exactly how to do it. We check out some magazines, we see there are many books we can read, we investigate web-sites that promise to help us in our quest. But it seems like a heck of a lot of work. Well, it is!
However, part of the problem is that we look at the big picture and it seems like it's a huge undertaking. But like everything else, if we break the monster down into small bite-size pieces anyone can "eat an elephant".

And next year you'll start on another 365 little "mouthfuls", and at some point you'll have a pretty good idea what the heck you're doing without ever knowing exactly when you morphed from a "wannabe" to a "be".
