Amateur Astronomers Clubs in Pune
If you're just getting started in astronomy, the best thing to do is to first spend some time under the stars with just your eyes and get acquainted with the brighter stars and constellations. The typical amateur astronomer is one who does not depend on the field of astronomy as a primary source of income or support, and does not have a professional degree or advanced academic training in the subject. Many amateurs are beginners, while others have a high degree of experience in astronomy and often assist and work alongside professional astronomers.
