Thanks Simon.

The main difference with these images over my previous ones was freezing the whitebalance and using the colour sliders rather than auto wb during capture. The colour balance was improved even more by using create luminance from RGB in Registax then using auto RGB balance. Only Registax was used for these images apart from the 2 best which were tweaked in image analyzer using deconvolution filters. I will probably put the avis on these through vdub to weed out the duff frames as registax seems to let quite a few duds through the net.

Cheers Neil! Good conditions make such a difference though. Conditions were so clear even if the seeing was unpredictable.
