spray gun tuning help please..

read the primer (npi) in the FAQ thread, but i'm having some other issues.
i'm using a vaper hvlp detail spray gun with a 1.0 tip and i'm spraying the new version of auto air colors. i've tried from 35-55 psi and i'm getting the better atomization at 55. still getting some spattering though.
i did a spray out test and one of two things is happening: either the spray pattern looks more like a banana or a turd than a cigar, a little curved and or the pattern is canted (adjusted the fan tip thingy to compensate)
OR it looks more like a q-tip than a cigar...fat on the ends and light in the middle....
any direction>??

oh yeah....never shot any kind of paint out of a gun in my life so please esplain to me like i'm in the 2nd grade.
thanks.
