Vignetting Correction ?/Help

After I finished my limit of ducks yesterday I put the gun up and brought out the camera. After I got home I realized that I may have a good shot, but I've only got the kit 55-200 lens that came with the D5000, and there is a good deal of vignetting in the corners. When I take photoshop to it, 3 of the corners clear up nicely. The 4th, with the moon, leaves an off colored haze around that corner.

Is there anything else I can do? I'm not an expert in photoshop but any assistance you could provide would be great.

You can see here what I'm dealing with around the moon

    Looks pretty noisy, too. Noise reduction, sharpening and vignette correction should all be done in ACR before moving to Photoshop. Vignette correction is under the lens button, fifth button from the right on the screen shot you provide above.

    That would be a start....of course you can always make a second layer and fix by hand.........

    Thanks, that screen print is awful. I've corrected the vignetting and got some advice on the purple glow around the moon. Here's the PP of it.

    Why not under lens corrections, correct for it there when out of ACR? Something is indeed weird about the way ACR is handling that. Or, why not leave the vignetting? I often like it. I know I like it better than what's around the moon there.

    Another solution is to mask and remove the moon. Do your processing and put it back. That way you could move it a little to the left as well. I do that all the time with a moon.
