Observing the Moon for beginners

Beginning backyard-astronomers often ask me “what do I need to start observing the Moon”. Basically you only need two things to start off with lunar observing: a small telescope (or binoculars) and a map of the Moon. You also should know a few other things: when to observe the Moon and what to observe (as a beginner). In this article I will try to answer these questions. In the near future I will write an article for those wo are past the beginning stage, the "intermediate" observer. This article however, is meant for the beginning lunar observer.
