The First Light Guides are designed to help anyone with a telescope 60mm and larger to find and observe objects in the night sky. Over the course of the next couple of months, a total of about 70 objects will have their own page, with several videos on each so observers can use a magnified finderscope or a red dot finder. (Setting circles videos will be added in the future.)

This is still somewhat new, and takes a lot of time to edit and get set up, so at the moment there are just a dozen or so objects ready. If you happen across a log in page, that object isn’t ready yet. The ones that are ready are visible in the evening sky. Check out the videos above for more information, or click through to the First Light Guides section, here!
