Last night (5-25-2020) I had one of the best experiences so far this year observing and capturing the planets.  I used my Celestron C8 SCT, and ASI224MC camera, a Televue 3X barlow and an Astronomik L2 UV/IR cut filter.

After the image session I installed a Baader Morpheus 9mm eyepiece and spend around an hour observing the planets. At all went to bed at 4am but definitely it was worth the time spend.
