Still getting the hang of the new camera (IMX533). Plugging it straight into my 125mm f7 achromat gives a nice, if under-sampled, full disk:

Great shots! Which IMX 533 did you end up with? Player One, ASI, or another?

Great images.  What is your setup with regard to filtering?  Wedge?  Filtering?  What is your  sampling wavelength?  My new ZWO ASI533 just arrived and anxious to try it out with my Lunt Wedge and Astro-Tech AT72EDII F6.

Thank you all for your supportive comments. I'm still a novice at post processing, so most of the credit has to go to good seeing in the hours before sunset.

 

The camera is from Player One, Saturn M. I used a Baader Herschel wedge with ND and green filters.
