Brilliant Great Red Spot. I think you have the focussing pretty good. If you could stack a load of these and sharpen, I think you would get a lot of detail. My own attempts have been less than good recently. Jupiter is low down, and over some houses. Give it a few more weeks though . . .
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 comments,I will try deepskystacker but it never seems to work when I have tried on still images,it is quite high up in my south away from any trees.So I can get a clear image on most nights and I have also got an autofocus on my scope now to adjust without touching the tripod to avoid the wobble.I also have the baader moon and skyglow filter which seems to bring out more definition on the planets.
Thanks

I find Registax works fine for planets, and lunar features. Bluish filters can help darken the GRS, but I prefer to see the real colour coming through.
