Hello, as I applied HoughCircles and failed to detect the circles, does any one recommend to apply any filter before HoughCircles? Thanks.

The usual one is the Gaussian Blur, because a low-pass filter can reduce the detection of false circles. However, take into account that the Hough Circles function incorporates a Canny edge detector that is applied before the actual detection, so maybe you have to better tweak its threshold parameters.

The full example can be found here.
