Thats a really nice image.

 

I use EZ denoise most of the time and find it really effective.

 

EZDeconvolution I find a bit hit or miss. I sometimes find I need to tweak the starmask by adding some ellipses and often the final effect is too subtle to be worth the bother. When that happens I revert to normal Decon using the PSF script  and using starmask for local support and Lum mask for background protection and more often than not that gives me a better result.

 

I've not tried EZ HDR any tips on when/how to use it to best effect?

I've been playing around with the EZ Processing Suite and did the decovolution script and the HDR script. Very impressed. It has brought out a lot of detail

The only script I use in the suite is the EZ Denoise script and the EZ Star Reduction. I have tried the EZ Decon script, but it has no effect on my images. I have never used the EZ HDR script, is it similar to HDRMultiScaleTransform?

Yes the EZ HDR script seems to use HDRMST. The Decon script does need a little playing around to make it work without creating dark circles around stars and also you need to play around with creating a suitable point spread function image. The results are very subtle when you get it right but having knowledge of how to deconvolve manually helps as you can understand what the script sequence is doing,

I used the default settings on a starless view which had been stretched. I used StarXTerminator to remove the stars as I'm still on the trial period.

The settings are thus:
