Rings of Saturn

Something that I've wanted to do for some time now is to experience what it's like to look through a telescope. How neat would it be to see the rings of Saturn, for example, or to see the red glow of Mars? Someone at work was talking about his 8-inch telescope, and its ability to see the shadow cast on Saturn by its rings. He also mentioned that there is a local astronomy club day where they set up a bunch of telescopes in the park and people can come and have a peek.

While reading this page, I came across a new word: astrophotography. Sounds like that could be a lot of fun!
