Mel 15 HaRGB
« on: 2014 December 08 13:09:59 »
Im happy with my Ha processing but am not pleased with adding RGB.  I tried NBRGB, Harrys method without success.  Just don't like the colors.

Can someone give this a try? Then let me know how you did the combination? 

Ha 32x600
R 25x300
G 25x300
B 25x300

All Bin 1x1

After cropping the images I combined the RGB and processed like any other RGB. ABE or DBE, BN,ColorCal and so on. I then use MaskedStretch. I processed the Ha alone but when it came time to stretch I used the same MaskedStretch settings as the RGB. I then used NBRGB. I used Non-Linear and Linked. I used the defaults for the RGB and the Ha since I don't know the bandwidth. From there just more regular processing.

Attached is a screen shot of both the NBRGB processed and the RGB image.

thanks.  I suspect my errors where different a different stretch for each sub and not linking with non linear.

Here is my try.
For RGB just basic stuff. ChanelCombination, BackgrounNeutralization, HistogramTransformation. HT on Halfa.
Then I used HaRGBCombination script. I get this script from one PI user on forum, but unfortunately I can`t remember who was it.
After that I have extracted L component from HaRGB image, then combined extracted L with original Halfa. Resulting image was then LRGB combined with HaRGB image.

Thank You Torsinadoc for providing this wonderful data to work on. I'm learning Pixinsight, so this was very useful.
