No.  There's no reason to feel that way.  The more you read, the 
more you learn.  Don't feel bad about that.

And there's no reason to struggle along on your own.  If asking a 
question will help clear things up for you, do not hesitate to ask.
That goes for everyone else here too.

Though I've been interested in space since way before Sputnik, it was 
interesting replies from people like Ted Molczan on Celestial BBS that 
encouraged me to get involved with on-line discussions.

So ask questions and go out and observe the sats that are talked about here.
