I found that this options works very well if your initial NCS operators
are quite accurate and the starting phases are reasonably good. 

In cases of poor NCS operators and/or very poor phases I usually use a
simple multimer mask (e.g. a huge sphere or slice around centre of NCS
symmetry if it obeys pointgroup symmetry). This allows refinement of
the NCS operators up to 5 degree (rotation) and/or ~ 5 Angstroem
(translation) away from their initial values. A correlation based
initial mask will tend to 'stick' with the initial NCS operators - on
which this correlation was based! (see e.g. GETAX documentation).
