Thanks Fred - that is a relief - thought I was going mad. I think I read about shooting blue when the target is high - that plus a refocus for blue should improve the raw data - and I will not be shy about hitting my blue frames with decon....thanks for the tip.

I have re-processed - it is now better but I have realised that I have actually over-exposed the L at 120s and this has burnt out the star cores, my colour balance is also not great, I used the auto feature in AA4 because I have not got calibration values for my filter CCD combo yet and there is light pollution in the signal (shooting S from North of Sydney for this object)...still a lot to learn..
