Jase and Peter, given both of your replies, I found that star bloat is an issue at 10 minutes, but like I said on the really bright ones only. I am using a flattener now but still some minor aberations that I am hoping to get taken care of in the next shipment from GSO. What are your individual recommendations for the 8" RC and the KAF8300 and exposure times? I found 5 minute subs have way too much noise and don't help with going deep either. I would need to take hundreds to pick up my signal on say NGC1365. Do I just suffer the bloated stars or do I use shorter subs but more of them?

Thoughts?
