Hello Anyone

I am trying to figure out how to do HDRMT on an image with a star mask covering all the stars and on the large stars I continue to start to get a doughnut. Star core starts to become darker at 6 layers and gets worse as I lower the layers. Larger # layers no star core problem but also no enhancement of the image (visible)

Any help would be appreciate

I normally make a clipped lum mask, remove all the stars (something like PixelMath "iif(star_mask>0.1,0,$T)") and then blur a little with convolution.  I use that to mask the image when applying HDRMT.

Cheers,
Rick.

Hello Rick

Did not help with preventing the doughnut on larger stars.

RickS:
Steve,

You have the option to increase the coverage of the stars (reduce the "0.1" factor in the PixelMath expression) or use MorphologicalTransformation Dilation to increase the size of the stars in your star mask.  If you have a troublesome star then masking it out is probably the best solution.  There are many ways to get there...

Cheers,
Rick.

Hello Rick


I have tried increasing size of stars in the star mask and even when I can see the star is completely covered by the star mask on medium/large stars after HDRMT the core gets darker and gives a doughnut appearance.

Well, I might just have to use 6 layers and live with that for HDRMT
