I finally received my Televue 3x Barlow. This will allow me to get my focal ratio from the native f5 on my 6″ reflector closer to f18, which is required for imaging planets. With the new barlow the imaging train will be at f18 and over 2500mm focal length, and I will be able to squeeze out the greatest resolution and contrast that a fast focal length 150mm newtonian can provide.

But for first my try, I used my 80mm refractor. Here is my first planetary image:
