Tips for Observing Saturn
translated as "[Saturn] is surrounded by a thin flat ring, nowhere touching and inclined to the eliptic"
Christiaan uygens (1659)
I can probably go out on the limb and rim and assert that anyone who has looked at Saturn through a telescope is simply overtaken by its beauty. My TV-102 Light Cup has put together a collection of tips, guides, etc. to help new observers with Saturn. I seemed to recall not to longer ago when I first started observing Saturn and could sure enough see the ring. However, I couldn't even tell the difference what they're or how the Crepe Ring look like through a small telescope.. I hope you find the collections useful as I myself still have a life-long learning on The Ring Planet to do .
