The second one is as good as it gets. Do you do these hand held? What focal length?

I am using a Nikon D500 connected to my Orion Optics VX12 telescope which is equivalent to 1200mm F/4 and also a 2x barlow giving effectively 2400mm. All tracking is done by hand and the images are manually exposed but generally ISO 200 with around 1/500th second shutter speed depending on the time of day.
