- The full version of Photoshop is $600.
However, there's a "light" version called Photoshop Elements
(formerly called Photoshop LE). It's got most of what you need
and it is only $99.
The same package will work on Macs or PC's too.

Photometric calibrations of your images (in FITS) format, calculating the
magnitude and exact position of each object, saving the results in the proper
scientific format. This is incredible if you enjoy doing variable star
observation. It can calculate down to several hundredths of a magnitude with
a very small margin of error on an image with decent signal to noise ratio.
It also has a blink feature, which allows you to compare two images (of the
same section of sky) taken a few minutes apart, and cause anything that has
changed relative position to "blink". This feature can pick out a comet up to
12th magnitude on my LX-90. If you aspire to bagging the next comet, this is
a wonderful tool. I have just scratched the surface with this program, but
can highly recommend it for features going well beyond it's ability to make
some pretty pictures.
