About

About Sandhan Valley

Every to-be observer often wonders, Where do I begin?. Astronomy often is the hobby of looking at very distant object with a telescope... Unfortunately, for so many people, it ends with the skinny unused telescope offered as a kid for a birthday. 

Truth is, people rarely know what to look for. Yet, it can be so much simpler if you know the following: Don't start with a telescope, start with your own eyes.

Every dedicated astronomer is first and foremost a stargazer. 'Stargazing is the act of seeing subtle details, comparing and contrasting what you see from what you know. (Wikiversity)
