>From all the programs I tried Helicon Focus does the best job, especially
with difficult specimens like hairy or spiny objects. Advantages are
excellent algorithms, intuitive interface, easy retouching options. Latest
version includes remote camera control which should work with Canon and
Nikon DSLRs. Disadvantages: difficult selection of photographs to process,
and clunky scales. Overall well worth money asked.

Microscope suppliers license third-party algorithms or write their own. I
tested Nikon's, Leica's and Ziess's and Keyence's. Neither of them provides
quality of Helicon Focus.
