What's the trick for a perfect looking cheesecake?

I have a great recipe (from ATK) for a pumpkin cheesecake, but haven't been successful in getting that perfectly smooth looking cake, i.e. on the sides. Am I not greasing the springform enough? Should I be using greased parchment? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
