    First time I saw Saturn through my scope, I was pretty blown away too. Then with the 2x Barlow and 10mm EP, the detail I was seeing on the planet was even more incredible. Since the rings are edge on to us right now, it'd be nice to be able to see Titan's shadow transit Saturn, but I think that requires a larger scope.

    Awesome!!

    Saturn was the first thing I saw after the Moon and it is amazing. I'm pretty sure I shouted a few expletives of joy for being in disbelief that I actually found it myself and then enjoying its views haha.

    Good work, Jazza. You seem to be enjoying your new telescope a lot.

    Hi Gibs, Can you see Saturn with your Orion AstroView 100mm EQ Refractor Telescope? I googled your telescope and its very nice looking and looks pretty descent. I rushed into buying mine and spend £150 or $223 and now im getting pretty bored of it already as its not the best.

    Yes.....With the 100mm Orion Astroview, Saturn is observable. Right out of the box and with the supplied 10mm eyepiece, Saturn and its rings are clearly seen, as is its moons.

    So far this scope (my first telescope btw) has surpassed my expectations. Easy to use as well .

    Theres a review on Cloudynights.com and I found this review to be helpful as well--> Orion Astroview 100

    Hi jazza , I remember the first i saw saturn . It was with a meade ETX70 maxed out using a 3.7mm orion epic eyepiece . It was soooooo small but it was the coolest thing i have ever seen ... It was probably 6 or 7 years ago and the rings had a real good tilt to them , but with the small refractor that the ETX70 is the image was real fuzzy . ETX70 is only a 350mm focal length and 70mm aperture .
