Certainly, we can and often do participate in astronomy just for fun, just for the beautiful sights we see in a telescope. But think about this; if you are going to take the time to haul all of that equipment outdoors anyway, why not do something serious with it. Make an observation that means something, record it properly, and report it to the appropriate organization. It could be you making the next meaningful contribution to this science of astronomy.
