Processing Techniques: Stacking

Challenge #28 in the Our World and Beyond series. Hosted by JamesD28.
Challenge has finished
This sub-series explores how various processing techniques can be used to enhance images in different ways; this week's technique is stacking. There are 2 types of stacking. The first is focus stacking, where multiple images of a scene, set at different focus points, are stacked to produce an image with greater depth of field (ideal for macro photography). The second type is averaging stacking, where many shots of the same scene are stacked to average out image noise, effectively allowing photography at a higher ISO, with the cleanliness and detail of a lower ISO (ideal for astrophotography). Submit, in a single image, one of the frames used in the stack, and the final stacked image. Be creative and have fun.

I wanted to capture my watch hands' phosphorescence, so I dimmed the room light and captured a series of 60 pictures during one hour, stacked them together adjusted exposure and, there it is.
