New to PI and have been playing around with the software, in particular the Masked Stretch. Below is an image of Alnitak where I have done the following
1. Calibration, Registration and Integration
2. Cosmetic correction, DBE, Background Neutralization, and Color correction
3. Using EZ suite, Deconvolution, Denoise
4. And finally Masked Stretch
As you can see, all my saturated stars have little (or not so little) pink centers. I understand this is due to the mismatch in the peak values of the RGB channels, but not sure how to fix it. I did try the HSV repair script as a remedy which I saw was suggested on the PI forum, but that just gave me blue centers. I did the HSV repair scripted between step 3 and 4 above, perhaps that needs to be done earlier? Appreciate any suggestions that the group can provide. I am excited about the rest of the result!
