I just downloaded a trial of Helicon Focus, and it certainly makes the process simple.

However, I see some of the same artifacts that I see with PS CS 6's merge layers command. It has areas where it selected pixels from the wrong layer, creating "blurry bits" that don't belong.

They are stack smoothies

Nope. PS did not have those blurry haloes when using the same stack, and different settings greatly improved, but did not eliminate the problem. I also looked at the images and there are sharp pixels of those areas if you select the right layer. It seems to be a problem with the halo of the near elements blurring over onto the layers that contains the sharp BG elements and confusing the stacking SW.
