How To Fix Your Amateur Astronomy Deficiency
Without shelling out $$$$$ for a telescope. You subscribe to the Slooh online observatory. For $50/year, you can access Slooh and participate in unlimited oberservation sessions and save and download pictures of the things you see. You also get 15 minutes of time where you control what the scopes are pointing at. The really cool thing is that the observatory is located in the Canary Islands, so the seeing is great. And with scopes nowadays being controlled by computers, this is a natural fit for the Internet. Sorta like Internet hunting, only without the live ammo.
