First guiding attempt with PHD

Here is my first attempt at guiding with a QHY5 camera and PHD.
Taken 13 September 2012 this is a SINGLE, 20 minutes exposure of the Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888), taken with the QHY8L ccd with my William Optics Megrez 102 on a NEQ6 mount.
Perfectly round stars right into the corners. Some people have reported that they were having problems with PHD, I don't know why, it is a really simple to use program and very effective.

I have had a go at processing this image.
