I'm not able to get to my computer at the moment, so I can,t get a close look but they look pretty impressive. Getting proper colour out of Jupiter can be difficult, but you need the right setting. You did well with the focusing for a barlow

EDIT
Now I can get a better look, you seem to have caught one of Jupiter's satellites! (Right hand Side). You should be able to increase the contrast at that point to bring it out better. Often folk will do 2 exposures; one for the planet, then one of several seconds to bring out any of Jupiter's moons that might be lurking about.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
