I just posted a new update to my PixInsight Process Flow on the sticky thread.

 

https://www.cloudyni...-3#entry9387442

 

As previously, I have done a full review of all sections for typos and clarity. I have update several parts of the preprocessing including registration to a single master reference and using low noise references for localnormalization. I also added a new scoring formula with variables that is much easier to use. The major changes are:

 

1) how to use the PSFImage script as part of deconvolution

2) a completely updated section of blending narrowband data into RGB data. This includes a detailed section on how to build a mask to isolate only the narrowband enhancements. This section is the major addition.

3) more detail for some of the final post processing

4) lots more screen captures

 

Feedback including suggestions, comments or errors is more than welcome.

 

I hope this is useful

I have seen your process flow before; it’s thorough and well written.  I wanted to take a moment to thank you not only for putting it together, but also for your on-going additions and modifications, as well as ensuring it is accessible for our community to benefit.

 

So, thank you and clear skies!

Ara,

 

You are most welcome. I actually hope I can get some suggestions back to make it better. I still have a lot to learn to get better than average at processing. I am not that artistically talented so the processing part of AP is challenging to me more than any other part.

 

So if you have any suggestions for improvement, please let me know.

cfosters, let me echo Ara’s thanks, as I have found your process flows - and subsequent updates - to be very well detailed, helpful, and have referenced them numerous times!
