Thanks for the report on this - not something I'd ever tried before. I found Venus the most difficult as it was so close to the sun and I had to position my eyes just right on the eyepiece to avoid some glare but that fine sliver was worth the effort when I saw it.

Mars was interesting - I could swear I could see some darker mottling on it and the polar cap at my 10'oclock (I'm reversed with a star diagonal).

Saturn was the faintest but the rings were really obvious.

I will have to give the filters a go next time.
