There is a lot to see in the twinkling firmament. Especially in good visibility, the abundance of objects is easy to imagine. But the true beauty of the night sky with its stars and constellations, planets, star clusters and star-forming regions only becomes really visible when we look at them in a magnifying glass. For the layman, however, it is very confusing at first to know where and when he can observe an exciting object in the night sky. Also, when looking through binoculars or a telescope, it is difficult for them to know exactly what they are seeing. The lecture explains basic knowledge about easy-to-observe objects such as planets, stars, cosmic nebulae and star clusters and explains how you can do sky observation on your own balcony with simple means. At the same time, this lecture offers a refresher course in basic astronomy at the beginning of the year.
