stove vent condensation dripping

I live in New Orleans and I keep my house very cold, my attic has spray foam insulation. My stove vent was custom built and vents through the hip roof(7-12 pitch) I've attached some pictures. Temperature in attic maybe around 80 degrees, house temp at night is 65 degrees. Please let me know if I need to have the vent insulated to prevent the condensation.

Welcome to the forums.

If you are discharging cold air thru metal ductwork in the attic then it needs to be insulated in the attic where exposed to high heat to stop the condensation.
