Mure Denoise or Drizzle Integration with Noise Reduction

The PixInsight Mure Denoise Script does a great job of removing noise from your astrophotography images. However, opting for Mure Denoise means that you are unable to use Drizzle Integration. I believe that a 2X drizzle integration creates a smoother final image.

But instead of doing what I believed to be right, I decided to run a test. I was going to compare what my image would look like with my Mure Denoise Script process vs the combination of TGV Denoise and Multiscale Linear Transform combination.

PixInsight LRGB+HA Workflow

The LRGB+HA workflow uses either 4 or 5 filters

  • Blue
  • Hydrogen-alpha
  • Luminance (optional)
