Do you like these?

It looks like you may have caught a sun spot on the 2nd image of the sun; not bad.  Did you take these with a mobile phone held to the eyepiece of your telescope?  If you did then you may find one of these smartphone eyepiece adapters useful. They allow you to adjust the position for easy framing and they hold the phone securely to help with focusing. If you do go for one, watch out as astrophotography is addictive :)

Very nice, indeed. I particularly like the Moon shot. Excellent work considering these are taken by a phone over the eyepiece.

I find this method extremely frustrating and have not produced images as good as this. 

I have to agree with Saac though, a universal smartphone adapter would absolutely revolutionise your imaging potential. Give it some consideration because they are relatively affordable and the results can be pretty amazing, particularly on the Moon and planets.

 

Keep up the good work and clear skies!
