The magazine Popular Mechanics has a pretty good article up about how to get started in backyard astronomy. I know it's good, because they interviewed me for it! Actually, it does have some solid advice, like starting off with binoculars, and joining an astronomy club before buying a telescope.

I get a ton of email asking me for advice on telescope buying, so I'll have to add this article to the list in my FAQ!
