I don't have a problem with folks posting a "stacked" image, so long as they state that, because that's the way I sketch planets. I've stayed at the eyepiece for an hour or more (with breaks to stretch my neck!), and I sketch each detail as it appears / when the seeing allows. I've had nights with 2 or more dozen individual sketches that I amalgamate into a final single version that I then scan & post.
I don't see a big difference. I have seen a difference using Snap Shot Mode on my ASI120MC: By the time I click, that perfect view is gone due to the short lag time, and I wind up trash-canning the image.
As a minimum, post the scope, camera, and stacking program. IF you run the resulting image through PhotoShop or other enhancement software, then state that. If the image you post is average, better, or the worst compared to what you see with the scope, state that, too. I think I did that when I posted images from the Orion StarShoot 2 that I started out with, because there were lots of my early attempts that were way below what I actually saw at the eyepiece. (I know, cheap gear, cheap results.)
Honestly, if my sketches didn't stink on ice, I wouldn't bother with imaging at all. I like being able to share a bit of what I saw with others, and that's about the best option for me.
