World class imager Manuel Jimenez put together a tutorial some time ago that taught me much about PixInsight's implementation of deconvolution. His tutorial can be found at his website. There are a few points to remember in order to get the best results.
1 - Do deconvolution on a linear image. Before you stretch.
2 - There's only so much deconvolution can do. It can't rescue a bad image, but it can make a decent one really "pop".
3 - Use the Dynamic PSF process module. It's your friend.
4 - Create a star mask for local deringing support in your image.
5 - Create a luminance mask to limit the process to high signal areas.
The Final Result
Like the image in the video I also did deconvolution on the OIII and SII data that I had collected in my attempt to recreate the Pillars of Creation image. Shown below is the end result. This was shot with my Explore Scientific ED152 f/8 Apo triplet from southern Arizona. It's a total of 37 hours of exposure time and processed entirely in PixInsight. Thanks for watching. Please contact me if you have any questions, comments or improvements to my process.
