After all these years, I still need to resort to SkyGlobe for any sort of reliable amateur astronomy... I've never found a replacement.

Had a chance to spy Jupiter and Saturn through the telescope this evening! Look at those positions!

My 4.5 inch Newtonian telescope can easily resolve Jupiter's Galilean moons and some stripes. Saturn's rings are just barely visible with it, but identifiable.
