Hi,

I only say that any image needs a custom workflow, just don't take any of my techniques/articles as a recipe because it will not fulfill your needs in most of the cases.

As I understand "Vicent's method" is still under investigation.

Vicent's method does not exist. In the Munich workshop I showed 7 different approeaches to HaRGB combination. Image processing is all about improvisation with good fundamental knowledge and a good eye to see what's happening in the image.

Do you have videos of the talk?  I'd love to understand what's going on better.

No, the workshop was not recorded. But new workshops are coming. :)

New version, V 1.7. Mostly cosmetics again, trying to address all of Juan's suggestions. Some code cleanup and minor bug corrections.

BTW, the script is general. It will be interesting if there are different pixelmath methods, to have the ability to select which method will be used.

Perhaps, just like Warren and crew, you should start video taping them and making them available online for a fee.

Hmmm, interesting suggestion, but I'll refuse.
I'm making my living with other means.
For me this is just for fun.

You could sell the rights to someone to produce the video using you as the expert ;)

And then we'd all benefit!

I'm not really interested, and frankly, I'm not an expert.

Ok, I guess this is long overdue, but since the released version complains for the lack of a license, and because I do not really like where this can finished, my preference is towards GPL. V2, V3, whatever. Silvercup ? Juan ?

As long as it does not prevent us from releasing your script as part of the official PixInsight distribution, you can use any software license of your choice. GPL is no problem at all, either version 2 or 3. We already have several GPL'ed scripts in the distribution. Personally, I don't like GPL (I see open source as an option, not as an obligation), but you can use it without problems if you want.

Another possibility if our PixInsight Class Library License (PCLL), which is a liberal BSD-like license. This is completely up to you.

Usually I prefer GPL vs BSD-like licenses for code,  we have seen a lot of "bad" examples the last 20 years, that abused open source code with BSD licenses for commercial reasons ( I do not really want to go into this conversation, but I'm sure you know what I mean :sealed: ).

Nevertheless, this is not exactly "my" script, and I do not have a problem with a BSD-like license for this case. I took a look in PCLL and I think it is fine, actually more than ok for this case. So PCLL will be.

Cheers
