Learn how to read sky charts.
I posted some link in the previous page, try reading them.
Here is some tips in reading sky charts:
1) Imagine the circular sky chart is a dome on top of your head.
2) From the big or little dipper, or any other constellation or astrological "landmark" you are familiar with, hop from one constellation to the other until you find the area you want to observe.
3) Learning the sky chart might be difficult at first BUT it is very rewarding AFTER you've learned it. Also it helps if you are using an updated print out. (A sky chart become harder to read after a few hours)
4) and lastly BE PATIENT (AMP, hirap talaga mag basa ng sky chart pag baguhan ka, i had to struggle last night just trying to locate the star Nath on taurus, and the constellations gemini, cancer, and leo)
sana nga i could print out the charts in a large format so i can read them better. this weekend i'll have to take the laptop with me and use that for the meantime while i'm outside... at night.... boy my neighbors will probably be soooooooo curious about what the heck i'm doing. it doesn't help that they already think i'm weird
