I can only speak for beginners:
1. Go to your book store, I good one with a good selection, and look for the big black book that has alot of high quality photo pages of nebulas and other great things. It's kind of a visual (and textual) encyclopedia on the various occurances at different levels of magnification. It's a visual orgasm, or perhaps multiple visual orgasms. But not a cheap thrill mind you as it's a bit expensive.
My favorite is Big Bang, by Simon Singh.

Singh is a fabulous storyteller. He makes the subject extremely compelling.
