What books and websites should I read to learn more about astronomy?

Title, anything from basic astronomy to quantum mechanics. I know a lot of the basic stuff, but being taught just from things I’ve read online, I’m sure that there is some basic information that I don’t know that is essential to expanding my education on the subject.

    It really depends on your math background. To study quantum mechanics, first you need to take calc I and II, linear algebra, differential equations, and a few semester of math for physicists, along with two semesters of intro physics, modern physics, and classical mechanics. If you’re starting at the beginning in astronomy, Frank Shu’s book ‘The Physical Universe’ is a classic but a bit outdated; Carrol & Ostlie’s ‘Modern Astrophysics’ is the standard advanced undergraduate text with some calculus.

    the magazine “Astronomy” is a good place to start. I get that. 🙂

    if you want to be entertained with videos, animations, diagrams and pictures while you learn amateur astronomy you may want to check out the source below. Especially if you want ongoing support and help from other amateur astronomers in the online community, the Astronomy Know How Forum.
