Thank you both,

Stuart, I cant believe this is only my third attempt to, I was very surprised once I started pulling out the detail in Photoshop at how much I managed to get out of the stacked image. This is the first image I have used flats in and it certainly makes a difference in the final picture.

Just need to get some shorter exposures for the core detail as it is a bit washed out and try to get some more data to sort out the Signal to noise, maybe a few lessons in Photoshop as well lol
