FYI you do need full PhotoShop CS5 for imaging tools, all you need is PhotoShop Elements, it has all the tools you need. and it is low cost, you should be able to get it for under $55 on the web. Let me know if you need some help.

All the best, Phil

Thanks Philip , good to hear from you . I'm am not using photoshop at the moment , maybe after I get a little more light under my belt I will make the jump . Thanks for the tip though , your thoughts are always welcome !

Hey Sam, really great capture, have you tried some subs inbetween at iso1200, you may also want to try doubling the image in PhotoShop and appliying screen mode and turn down the opacity, erace the star centers with a blured eracer tool but try and maintan the outside detail. Let me know if this makes any sense to you, otherwise give me a shout. Great shot man

I had the same problem with my 8" F/5 newt. I ended up croping the hell out of my images to have nice stars.
My coma corrector was one of the best pieces of gear I have purchased, and it has made a world of difference. The funny thing though, was I hardly noticed the coma when using the scope visually but it really showed up in images.

Thanks Mark . You read my mind about the coma corrector , it's on the top of my list of upgrades .
