Paul, the only way I have been able to increase red and reduce the pink is.
1. Reduce the intensity of the Ha when used as a luminance. Keep sharpened detail but just reduce the overall intensity.
2. Blend the unreduced Ha with the red channel before combining the colour channels.
3. Increase the saturation level of the combined image (Red) prior to combining the luminance layer.
4. Combine the luminance layer in photoshop rather than in CCDStack wher you have a bit more control of the blending levels.

It can be a bit of a juggling act but it does work to some degree. I even use a mixture of all these ideas to try and lift the red. Sometimes with better results than others times.
