Hello Richard, and welcome aboard.
Brad Morris' suggestion to start with the sextant is a good one. It's where I start when I teach the subject.
Attached is an essay about celestial I send to potential students to give them an overview of the subject and a general idea of what to expect in class. Learning celestial is not all that easy, nor is it all that hard.
Again, welcome to our forum, Richard. You'll find the folks here very knowledgable and very willing to help.
