First, lets talk about how I got the image. I use a Celestron Nexstar 6SE and a Galaxy Note 5 attached to a smart phone telescope adapter. I took a 3 minute video and then processed the video in Avistacks. The end result is this...
Next, I fired up Astra Image 4.0 and opened the image file. Click Process, then Deconvolution, then Deconvolution for sharpening...
Now make sure to click on "Lucy Richardson" as the Deconvolution Method, and "Cauchy" for the Blur Kernel, and leave the other fields default. You can play around with the different settings, but default values usually do the job.
Next, you are going to click Process, then Deconvolution, then Deconvolution for sharpening again...
This time though, make sure "Maximum Entropy" is selected as well as "Cauchy" and all others a default like so...
From here, you can play around with different Wavelets, brightness, contrast, colors and fine tune your image to your liking. The end result is much improved from the original Avistacks stacked image as you can see here in a side by side comparison...
And the full image here...
