can you elaborate?
I'm still seeking a standard HOO process in PI. Thank you!
I guess I should have said "simple" rather than "Standard" I am very far from being experienced or knowledgeable enough on PI to say what is "standard". But I guess what I did is currently my "standard" for this type of data. I expect you'll be able to point out plenty things I'm doing wrong or could do better. And I would highly value such comments.
Extract channels, Discard B (sometimes, if it looks interesting, I may keep B it and blend it in later)
Deconvolution on Ha
DBE on both
HT to non-linear - a moderate stretch and eyeballing background to have them similar (there must must be a better way to have them equal? )
Smoothed range mask on Oiii then CT to boost the brightness of the Oiii signal
Combine with SHO-AIP script, (I really dont know what I'm doing here so its trial and error. On this one I got what I wanted with..
Note the Ha used as L also
masked with luminance mask combined with starmask
CT for Saturation and brightness
SCNR (strength 0.5)
I then took it to Photoshop for final tweaks - I expect these can all be done in PI but I dont know how yet
this was -
Camera raw filter to selectively adjust the colours to exactly what I wanted
Selective Highpass routine to make the inner core details pop
Some healing brush to get rid of some of the big halo's (star cores masked)
Final levels for background and curves for brightness.

If this had been my own data and I was looking to get it as good as I could possibly make it, I may have done some more noise reduction, some star reduction and maybe spent more time on the colour (as Freddy says - maybe a bit soso )
I hope this is of some value to you.
