A tutorial using Pixinsight to process a Ha version of NGC6888

Description

This is a tutorial that shows how I processed NGC688 Ha in Pixinsight. NGC6888 is from my point of view a difficult object to process. The main challenge is to preserve/bring out details without "burning" the details in the outer parts of the nebula. I solved this by using MaskedStretch to make it very bright and then used curves to reduce the intensity and make contrast. Another important steps is the masked Deconvolution that is done at the end to sharpen a bit. This step could have been done by other processes but for this image i selected to use Deconvolution.
