Nice one. That's about the same as I get from good ol' LP'd Manchester with the 450d and 18-55 kit lens. Have you thought about getting over to a dark sky area of North Wales with just the camera and a tripod? At 18mm FL 30 sec exposures should be OK untracked and from a dark sky site you should pick up stars a fair few mags fainter.

Agree with the comments above, nice pic. Can you elaborate on using your laptop screen for flats? Is it just a case of photographing a white screen?

I use my iPad. It is just a case of imaging a white screen. It seems to work for me.
