Hi Liz

There's a few articles in the projects & articles section to get you started.

Astrophotography with a dob

and when you get more practise:

Planetary Imaging and Image Processing

I hope they help. Most importantly, keep asking questions.

Webcam astrophotography with a dob (no tracking) can be very frustrating, so just start with the moon. Ideally you need tracking to get serious with astrophotography, but learning with your dob is still a good way to get started.
