Those new to astronomy are often given the advice, "Get binoculars first." And then they are left to... what? Scan around and hope to find... something? That's unfortunate. I think a little guidane is necessary, especially when the first thing most people think of for amateur astronomy is a telescope.
This list seeks to change that. While this list is one I have compiled, and will get larger over time, I have already made many YouTube videos on how to see some of the best objects in the night sky that are best viewed with binoculars!
So while I do not have the total set of pages ready (yet!), these will give the beginner astronomer a really good start with a low-cost set of optics like binoculars. In this way, not only can they learn the night sky, they can actually find and see interesting things too. And if you need some assistance on the purchasing side, here's a guide to choosing binoculars for astronomy.

Clicking on each link at present will take you directly to a previous YouTube video I created to show how to find these objects.
