After watching a tutorial from Simon at Woodland Hills, I decided to try using deconvolution with ImPPG after stacking, instead of wavelet sharpening with Registax. I'm convinced that this yielded a more natural-looking, higher-contrast image (having previously tried these data sets with my previous workflow). It's a great piece of free software!
