Just getting started

I am Richard Arvedson.  Soon I will be a retired teacher and I want to try to make some observations of variable stars.  I am a deep sky observer but I now live in a light polluted city (Houston, TX)  

Are there stars that are suggested for beginners?  Thanks.

Recommended stars for beginners

Hi Richard,

We do have a list of stars that are easy to find, easy to observe and cover a range of brightness and location on the sky. You will find the list here:

We also provide links to constellation finder charts for most of them.

Enjoy!
