->> Curious if anyone has any experience with focus stacked images. I've got some info on techniques about the process, but I thought if anyone else had some info or suggestions that helped them they might post it. Help or info would be appreciated.

->> Erik,

I have used Helicon Focus with good success. It's really easy to use.

George Lepp has written about this pretty extensively in Outdoor Photographer.

I originally purchased the software to let me do image stacks
of star trails on my mac (most other image stacking programs are PC based). It does this very well.

A 30 day trial is available with full functionality, I believe. I ended up buying it.
