I'm still a bit new here and haven't studied much astronomy (being an electronics dude) so can anyone give me a good link(s) for what we know about existing black holes. That is size, location, and other physical characteristics of those we have discovered so far.

Thanks DC

Here's a useful wiki link for starters.

This web page looks at stellar mass black holes and their accretion disks in binary systems-
