That looks awful with half dots, and again, you can do what I did in Photoshop. Like I said earlier, if you make a line of circles that decrease in opacity, then save it as a pattern to stroke the path of a circle, you wouldn't need to do it wrong. In fact it is paining me to watch this so much, I want you to have a vector file of the outer ring, so maybe we can put a stop to this.

In my opinion, Vector images like this are easier to work with in Illustrator, it took me 15 mins to get the outer ring of circles done in Illustrator, where it would have taken me more like 30 in Photoshop. The only advantage that Illustrator has with this, is the ease at which you can work with multiple selections.
