When you combine the Ha data with the Lum, try using the lighten mode. This will keep the stars and the Ha data.
When I combine with Ha I always lose some star color. I did check some other images on the web to compare, but didn't see much color in this region.
I know I need to take an additional step in my processing to preserve the stars. I am always so amazed with your images and the color you are able to capture in the surrounding stars.
Perhaps you could share your processing workflow with me.
I love the nebula, but the stars seem to have no color.
The attached link is a recent shot of The Helix Nebula taken with a 20" telescope I used in Australia. The details are below the image.
