Hello! Just saw saturn for the first time!

Hello Forum peoples

I've been interested in astronomy for a several years now and I managed to grab a rather cheap skywatcher 4.5" reflector a couple of years ago. I've seen a few things through it.. the moon (twas hard to find), jupiter, the blurry blob of andromeda etc. but it's been a couple of years and I really haven't been hugely impressed for a while... until 30 minutes ago when I saw Saturn for the first time! Normally I cannot see it due to tree lines and my house but I am away this week and I have finally gazed upon it's lovely rings!

Anyway this really reignited my astronomy passion, I do look at upgrading in the near future when I can drive so that I can travel with the bigger scope to find places where I can view these objects in better detail, but in the mean time it's fun just finding them.

It's great to get back into astronomy and hopefully meet some others like me!
