Astronomy is a great hobby with something for everyone. You can split doubles, count binaries, do spectrum analyses, seek planets, asteroids, and comets. You can capture the sky on film, tape, and digitally. Or you can just enjoy viewing meteor showers, lunar and solar eclipses, and much, much, more. The sky is literally the limit!
