Hope y'all forgive a beginner's childlike enthusiasm, but tonight (for the first time) I saw Saturn through the telescope.

Wow

Only saw it 3 weeks ago for first time. Certainly breathtaking. A joy to see every time.enjoyed imaging it last Saturday and got nice results. Such an elegant looking planet.

You don't need forgiving.  We all have a childlike enthusiasm for Saturn.

Saturn is definitely one of those objects that leaves you mesmerized and yearning for more! It almost looks unreal in the eyepiece.

Seeing Saturn for the fist time myself only a few weeks ago with the exact same enthusiasm is what made me realize i am going to be spending a great deal on this hobby. just mind blowing when you see things like saturn, we all know they're there and see images on the net etc but nothing quite compares to seeing it yourself

I love Saturn, if someone doesn't go wow when they see it, they must be mad, I always get excited by it.

I still say "wow" and I bought my first scope over 20 years ago.  Saturn is more than a bit special.

First astronomical object I saw through a telescope when I was about 10 years old and WOW was right then and still is some decades later

Congratulations. Just need to cut the tree down at the bottom of the garden to get decent viewing of Saturn in my garden. Who wants to tell my wife ?!

Seeing Saturn through a scope sure is special. First time is a wow moment you'll never forget. Congratulations!

Perfectly understandable, I say WOW!! every time I look at Saturn through the scope! I thinks its compulsory.

I get a "Wow" feeling by just hearing and seeing others get the "wow" feeling.

I love sharing the views of the night sky with others for this very reason.
