Mars is only just becoming visible in the pre-dawn sky and both Jupiter and Saturn are tricky because they are so low still in our skies. I've had reasonable seeing for Saturn on a couple of occasions in teh circumstances but Jupiter has remained more challenging for me so far.  This was about the clearest I've managed.
