Take more time looking at stuff instead of just going object to object. Getting a sketchbook and keeping better notes.
It's amazing how much more detail you will see, when sketching targets! It's also a lot of fun!

2.Start observing the asterisms on the download list from the Saguaro Astronomy Club. After 50 years of observing, I'm shocked at how few of these I know.
