NGC 6888, deconvolution test

A fellow astro imager, Neil Fleming, in Yahoo group "astro_narrowband"
give me an idea about using more deconvolution algorithm to this image.
Thanks a lot Neil!
After testing several softwares, I found CCDSharp giving me best resul in this case.
( CCDSharp is a freeware from Sbig )
33 iterations of Lucy-Richardson deconvolution.
The Stars came out just fine, so no separate processing for them.
Final result was way more better than I was expecting!
You can compare those images to a previous ones, HERE in a HST-plalette and HERE in a Natural colors.
Imaging details can be found behind the links too.
