advice planetary shots


Ok currently running a Bintel 200mm Newtonian reflector f/4 with my HEQ5 pro and a Sonya7. Now i have been getting quite good shots of nebulas and such. But im interested in taking nice shots of Jupiter and Saturn.

I recently purchased a Tele Vue Powermate 5x with an adapter to connect to my dslr. Now the issue is i just cant seem to that close enough of shot and i'm struggling to get great focus. Even when i was turning my attention to the moon i just really struggled to get good focus.

In what direction should i be turning my wallet too, to achieve what im after? Im thinking camera?

Any advice welcomed.
