There are some good photos there, Andy. The first moon picture of Imbrium/Serenitatis is particularly good in its focus and exposure. The rest suffer a bit from overexposure of the highlights. Either the overall exposure needs reducing or if you have a 'contrast control' then it needs turning down.

Your 'mystery photo' is rather strange. The background is very blotchy for some reason. There is no context to identify it. Without knowing the scale and exposure time it could be almost anything.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.

Hi Aratus thanks for the reply I did change the contrast back to default on the software as it had increased slightly for next time and the mystery image was in the plough constellation at about 22.49 in the evening,but moved quite fast before I could get in focus and track.I thought it might be a bird that when across the telescope,but not sure.
Thanks
