The 2nd and 3rd pics look good to my untrained eyes. I like the perspective of the 3rd one. It has some nice depth. Nicely done.

(Just got in from showing my son Jupiter for the first time. I know it's 3am... He's nearly 20 though...)

any critics please so i can improve thanks

Not bad, not at all.  When I take snaps through my telescopes, I sharpen them with a paint programme, but only to match the sharpness seen when observing with the eye and an eyepiece.  I also adjust the contrast, and again, only to match what was seen live.  For example, I took this shot of the Moon through a 60mm refractor...

Now, you may think that sharp and clear, but I saw the minutest of detail within this area of that image during a live view with my own eye and eyepiece...

...craterlets and rilles, hills and dales, seemingly tens if not hundreds of them, but the camera could not capture a single one.  Therefore, I think that you've got a very nice telescope there.
