I have been playing with planetary photography for about a year now. I feel I am making progress up this steep learning curve but hit some walls occasionally. The biggest problem I am concerned with now is focusing. I have a Celestron Nexstar 8SE and the Celestron focuser motor. I am using a Svbony SV305. I capture using Sharpcap and then process with PIPP, AS3, Registax 6 and GIMP. I have not had any success using the focus tools in Sharpcap and usually end up focusing visually from my laptop. I am looking for some feedback and tips to improve my results. Please see the photos here and help if you can. Thanks.
