Hi Allan,
An update on my issue.

I have taken some test images in between the clouds as they came and went but this time I changed PCs, I used my laptop, loaded all of the updates etc as directed and fired away bearing in mind this Clamp setting and attached are the results.

The lines appearing in my original image have gone, attached are 30 second exposures using MaxImDL using the EQMod drivers with the Clamp off and then on. (Hover over the thumbnails)

The framing of M42 is not the best but I was dodging clouds and the processing is overdone to show any irregularities in the image.

One thing I have found is the spikes in the stars?? These appear on all images.

I have also taken 2 x 200sec of the same field and have used Ezycap as well. (I can post these if required)

So I'm starting to think there was a problem with my original PC?? I have also spoken to Theo who thinks along these lines as well but has told me to image a brighter star field to be sure and to let him know of the outcome.
