Journal FortKnox's Journal: Amateur Astronomy 8

I've always "looked up" at night, and know a few constellations (I know I spelled that wrong), and always wonder what that bright thing in the sky is.

I'd like to start to get into Amateur Astronomy (yeah, I know AnalogBoy already Asked Slashdot). But, as a twist, I can't really spend any money (baby comes in 5 weeks from friday at the latest). I'd like to find some non-spending ways to get into it a little bit. Any free software running on Windows (my linux box can't handle drawing of that magnitude)? Starmaps, etc? What about inexpensive alternatives to telescopes/binocs?

Analogboy is a reader, so tell me what you're experiences have been so far, please.

Any help is appreciated.
