Pulling detail without effecting star shapes?

This weekend under very poor transparency I imaged IC-5070 in Ha. One

session was 11 x 5 minutes the other 18 x 10 minutes. It took every

processing newbie trick I knew to get anything out of the 10 x 5 min

and only adjusting the levels and a little contrast on the 18 x 10

min. I think a testament to the power of narrowband and lots of data.

I could only see a hand full of stars all night with my naked eye.



A blog ("IC-5070 The Pelican Nebula") on my website has side by sides

and I invite tips on how to bring out more detail the 18 x 10 min. I

made a pass but the smaller stars started to square off so left almost

un-processed.



I have been doing most of my processing in PS but am looking for

advice on pre-processing in MaximDL



(Sorry in advance for posting this on multiple forums but I seem to

get different help in each)



Thanx, Paul
