I am a beginner in astronomy. In fact, I just bought my first refractor telescope with 60 mm aperture and 600 focal lengths with 4mm, 12.5mm and 20 mm eyepiece and 3x barlow.

Could I get info on android app or book where I can see real-time position of planets and other amazing celestial bodies, I am in the northern hemisphere.

    $\begingroup$ Hi sudhirk, you can improve this question by showing a little prior research. Its fairly easy to search for android apps and planetarium software, and any of the apps would probably suit your needs. $\endgroup$

There are lots of apps you can download on your laptop / smartphone :

  • Stellarium : the one i use on my computer. Useful for beginners. You will see planets, some of the best known object, ...

  • Skymap for android : used it before, quite nice.

  • SkySafari : don't use it but some people told me it was great.

All of them are free. However, you can just search on google, there are plenty of online solutions.

  • $\begingroup$ SkySafari seemed to be good one $\endgroup$
