I just bought one I don't know but it is 900mm. It should be able to see Saturn. Look at this video below.

Anything less than 3" on a refractor and 6" on a reflector and you'll be stuck looking at the moon and no further. This is a 4.5" reflector.

More info [jimdo.com].

I have the cometron and I can see Jupiter and Saturn with different eye pieces. It's not very clear but I can see the rings on Saturn. I think the majority of people will be underwhelmed but for the price it's good for kids.

You can see Saturn with the naked eye...

I've owned this before. 4.5" typically would cost $120 so this is a great deal. Best you can see with this is Jupiter, the moon and possibly Saturn(depending on how good collimation is on the mirror).
