I tried several packages recently before buying AAv5.I already had CCDSoft v5, AIP4WIn and Guide. Agree completely with the sentiment that no one package does it all.I use SX and Sbig cameras mainly for photometry. AA has IMHO very easy calibration and colour procedures and the camera control is good.What I really like is the astrometry and photometry "calibration" of images using the inbuilt (GSC & USNO) star atlas.Just being able to open an image and plot RA and Dec with photometry readings direct with a few mouse clicks is impresssive.RgdsTony
