Thanks for the note! I am mainly interested in observing the stars (and other objects). With the right telescope and good viewing conditions one can see some stunningly beautiful things in the sky, if one knows how to find them.
I like the old legends too, although I don't know many of them. There are two constellations mentioned in the Bible! Here is the quote:
"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bonds of Orion?"--Job 38:31
I don't know the stories referred to here. Maybe you do.
P.S. I included that quote in an astronomy document I have written, since I think it is cool that something like that is in the Bible.
"Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain."--Helen Keller
