Just saw F. I've tried many times before, without success. I didn't do anything different than previously:
Celestron 8SE (C8) reasonably well collimated.
Nagler 13mm T6.
Moon was not far away (1st quarter).
Maybe the seeing was better than usual - I don't know!
E was a cinch, while F was harder, but definitely there.
For E & F, perseverance seems to be the key.
