Any of you guys Astronomers? If so, are you active and what telescope do you have?
I've been a space nut since I was a kid. I had a telescope back then, but it was a cheap toy rather than an actual usable telescope.
After years of just reading and watching I finally decided to take the plunge and buy a new telescope. I ended up getting a Zhumell Z10 Dobsonian telescope.
It is a great starter scope, but it's a huge monstrosity weighing in at about 60lbs and standing over 4" tall. (I would recommend something smaller for a first telescope though) Once you get it setup and pointed at the sky the view is incredible!
Saturn is already in the night sky as soon as it gets dark. While you can see it with the naked eye, once you put the telescope on it, you can see the rings and even several of it moons. Saturn is amazing to look at. If you haven't ever seen it through a telescope it's a must do.
It looks about like this in my telescope, but actually viewing it makes it pop a bit more over just a picture. (must sharper image) This was taken with an 8" telescope, mine is a little bigger (10") and shows a little bit more detail. Not seeing any moons in this picture though. (usually you can't miss Titan as it's bigger than our moon)
Some observatories have public open viewing nights. If so, you should check it out before Saturn isn't viewable anymore during the early evenings.

There is a good chance that you don't like me, but there is a better chance that I don't care.
If I'm not insulting you, I'm probably not aware that you exist.
