My 1.09571 Bhutanese Ngultrum worth: First the most common thing I hear is when I have Saturn in the eyepiece "OOH, It's painted on!", haven't gotten the F8n kewl remark like Beevo, but Saturn never disappoints. The other thing I like to do when I get a group around, is to tell them there are "x" number of planets are visible to the naked eye that night and to name them. Inevitably, the adults go through the ones they've seen and then start naming Uranus, Neptune & Pluto. Then some kid comes along and says "EARTH!". That's right, you're standing on it!. Almost always a kid. The adults them Face palm. That's one of the reasons I enjoy the public events.

I remember showing a gentleman the Moon in my Nexstar 11. He spent some time at the eyepiece and then turned to me in ernest and said "it is in great need of repair".
