FANTASTIC workflow document!! I can only second all the compliments to you that have already been posted !!!
I just started reading it today, and have made it about 2/3 of the way through with several partial re-reads in the process. While my workflow is similar in most respects, yours is MUCH better thought-out, includes a step or 3 that I have up-till-now omitted (for various reasons), and contains information I had not seen before. I will immediately re-work my NGC6946 data, which I had just today finished (up to generating a LRHaGB image, with PCC included), using your workflow. I expect the result to be an improvement on my just-finished product.
I have a question or two I would like to pose, if I may.....from Step 29 onward, it appears that you only work with a Lum master that was extracted from your RGB image, rather than a Lum master that was created from subs made using a Luminance filter. Is that correct, or did I miss something? Is there an advantage to using the RGB-extracted Lum master instead of the independently-generated Lum master (which is what presently I do)? Or can one use a stand-alone Lum master in your workflow as one would use an extracted Lum master?
As I work though your workflow further, I will probably have some more questions, which I hope you can address for me .
Once again, great job, and THANK YOU sincerely for all the time and effort put into it!!
Clear Skies !!
