Here's one from last month, just got around to processing it.

 

I don't usually use the color camera but gave it a shot (haha).

 

224mc at higher focal length than usual, 7300mm.

Was it hard to keep it framed with that long of a focal length and such a small sensor?

Not really. Using a precision worm on a G11, if polar aligned well (Im using the polemaster) it stays in frame for 15 minutes even.

 

Firecapture can autoguide, so you can keep it centered for hours.

 

I suppose you need a decent mount, not sure what would happen with a low end mount.

As he said, if PA good enough then you can track the planets for longer time, and i just started to use Firecapture and it really changes my experience, i liked that autoguide feature to center the planet, it helps me a lot if i will shoot with mono and different filters, mainly for RGB, even if you shoot at 10000mm it can help to keep the planet in center, but you have to make sure your polar alignment that good to keep the planet in the frame as long it takes.
