    Lovely work though!!
    Thanks.

    No filters yet, gotta get clearance from the wife first and that'll take some results with what I have.

Its down to viewfinder , maybe with a angled magnifier attached OR , if 10D supports EOS Utility software suite , us that with a lappy to achieve good focus .

    Try a few different settings and see what you like, there are also other software besides Photoshop that can do this.
    Thanks for the suggestions. I assumed using a bahtniov mask would mean setting the focus on a star first. Maybe I'll make one tonight since we've got clouds rolling in. I'll check out the Unsharp Mask in Photoshop. Maybe I can get the same results using Gimp (free) too.
