First speeding ticket. What should I know and expect from this point forward?

Lucky me, got my first speeding ticket. For going 20 over the posted limit. Officer just handed me the ticket, no questions because he got me via radar.
I am expecting that I won't get out of this one but in my defense I was just pulling out of an on ramp from a rest station and there weremultiple trucks to pass and was on a decline.
I am planning to appeal and be prompt. What should I expect and does anyone have advice to lend? More specific questions I have are:
How do I know if points are involved?
Will this affect my insurance rate? Again I plan to promptly respond and settle this issue whether with payment or scheduling court date.
As background info, it is my first offense and have a clean record otherwise. I live in MA.
