So far I've found a few dozen planet candidates, including several multi-planet systems. A lot of this work has been done in collaboration with users on Exoplanet Explorers, including @Cabbink.

Also I do often take out my 8" Dobsonian to take a look at the Moon or Jupiter or even just a random star field. I haven't been doing it as much lately, however.

Gone to the Real KSC, seen a rocket launch (MUOS-5) and got a telescope and look at Jupiter and Saturn all the time.

I saw a meteorite fall apart falling from space, or was it a satellite..?

I don't know, but I saw it about a few months ago

Watched the Perseids on the 12 (august), saw 10 in an hour, that's good considering there was a festival with spotlights/laserlights about 2 km away.

As far as I know, most of them are reusable.  At least all of mine were, not counting the ones lost in trees or lakes or that I just plain never saw again.

Stargazed, tried to make out the constellations.

Used my telescope on Jupiter.

Because nobody else has mentioned it in this thread yet:

I saw Halley's Comet on its last flyby. The local amateur astronomy club held free viewing events in the oval next to my school, so I got to check it out through a surprisingly powerful telescope as well as dad's modest binoculars.
