Hi Mike, are you 100% sure that you have Saturn? You may have to use a medium power to show the rings but what ever you should be able to see that it is not a star (pin point of light). Use a low power eyepiece (20mm) to find the object and then try a higher power eyepiece such as 10mm to show the rings. If you can get to our observatory we can help you a little better.
If you can see the moon this evening then Saturn will be close by to the upper left. Image to show this will follow shortly.
