What would be best?

I just sold my old Meade autostar suite for my meade etx 90 goto..

Im wanting to update to a new good astrophotography software, what would be best? Also to use on my 10" dobsonian, not just the meade and my PST..

Hello Sonia
You dont say what camera you use.
I use a canon 40dh and i am happy with astronomical image processing for windows by Richard Berry and Jim Burnell.
You get the software and the handbook , which is not a software manual but a general manual for astrophotography.
You can check it out on the willman bell website.
Cost $99 US.
The handbook alone is worth the $99. A upgrade is due soon and if you buy version 2 you get the upgrade for free.
The website allows you to download the foreword, chapter 1 and the index to check whether you want to buy or not.
Highly recommended.
Regards
Steve
