Using Deconvolution on Your Images

After HDRWavelets I'll usually do some deconvolution. This again I'm told should be done on linear data but again I haven't seen how. This is how I use it. Open the HDRWavelets image that you saved and then open the Deconvolution process. See below:

Generally this is how I have the settings except the Iterations may be from 5-10 depending on the image. As with all these tools, these are my settings and a place for you to start. Using the Motion Blur PSF function can help reduce oblong stars if the stars have the same geometry. When you have the desired result, save the image. What I've noticed using deconvolution in this manner is more of a sharpening affect but I like the results. Your mileage may vary.
