Last night we had clear skies over Louisville, so my older two sons and I braved near freezing temperatures to venture out in the front yard and set up the telescope (We have a 4.5" 1000mm focal length reflector). According to my astro software Saturn was in close proximity to the moon, making it very easy to line up. I plopped in a 25mm eyepiece (40x magnification) to line everything up. I was shocked when a tiny image of Saturn, complete with rings, and Titan came into view, I quickly put in a 9mm (111x magnification) eyepiece and called the kids over. At higher magnification, it was astonishing, and absolutely beautiful. The rings were very distinct and I could see 3 or 4 moons. Saturn and her rings appeared a ruddy brown, and the moons looked like tiny brilliant jewels. This was the first time we got a really good look at a planet in our scope and it literally gave me goosebumps! I knew the kids were impressed when they spent all of the rest of the night drawing pictures of Saturn. I just kept trying to imagine what Galileo must of thought the first time he saw that, words really can't describe how awesome it is to see it with your own eyes.
