Still learning PixInsight. Using the first version as a starting point, I used a starmap to generate a mask and apply a median transform and morphological operators to remove some of the overwhelming tiny stars. The result was then blent back with the image using PixMath to bring up some details in the nebulosity and back some stars.
Now I guess I should redo the whole workflow to do these steps earlier in the process. It should enable better noise reduction/control in the final image. That will be for v3 :-)
