Was pouring rain for 2 days solid but the skies cleared up for just 2 hours and I'd been waiting to try again with the ADC and recollimating. Turns out collimating horizontally with the diagonal in place was useless. I had to do it all over again with a star high in the sky, but couldn't get anywhere near the fine collimation I was hoping. The ADC was also useless since everything was high in the sky. Oh well at least I got a chance to try and redeem my last few duds, and I'd never gotten the moon before so I just grabbed one maximum magnification no-drizzle surface feature to try processing.

Even better, I went back and realised that Triton was actually captured so I boosted it the way I've been doing for Saturn.
