Nice report, Mak. I was out till the wee hours myself last night with my 180mm Mak-Cass doing some planetary imaging and observing of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. All of them looked magnificent, especially Jupiter which was absolutely brilliant with all of the Galilean moons to one side. Beautiful, distinctive cloud bands were visible through the scope. It will only get better as opposition approaches on the 14th. Saturn was no slouch either, revealing not only the amazing Cassini Division but Encke as well, and beautiful cloud bands. Visually, Mars was a stunning ruddy beacon as it rose with the waning gibbous moon in the East around 2:30 a.m. EDT (very striking). Through the scope, phase was apparent as well as albedo features. It was all too excited to see features on Mars, but I'm cautiously optimistic after 2018's global wind storm. I'm sorting through my imaging data right now which looks promising.
