You are probably running into atmospheric distortion. The planets will look a little blurry in your camera due to atmospheric turbulence. Unlike your eye, your camera can't blend multiple frames to build a clearer image. For planets we use a technique called 'lucky imaging'. First you record a video of the planet at a high frame rate, then software can pick the best frames and then average them together. Finally we use wavelet sharpening to bring even more details back.
